According to the AllMusic review of the song, "the lyric takes the cool, laidback image of the low rider — the Chicano culture practice of hydraulically hot-rodding classic cars — and using innuendo, extends the image War - Low Rider a lifestyle". The song's most distinguishable features are its driving bass line by B. Dickersonwhich is present almost throughout, and the alto saxophone riff by Charles Miller. It also ends with a siren -like noise that then becomes a saxophone solo.
Saxophonist Charles Miller also takes the lead vocal. The song has been covered by many artists, including the following: . It's War - Low Rider featured in the soundtrack for the video-game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreasas part of the War - Low Rider radio station Master Sounds In the UKthe song was well-known in the Odyssey - Inside Out as the music bed on a long-running series of TV advertsbeginning infor the food spread Marmite.
These campaigns played on the love—hate relationship that the nation purportedly had with the product the tagline was "You Either Love It Or Hate It".
The audio track therefore included interpolated lyrics such as "My mate, Marmite" and "I hate Marmite", sung in a style that mimicked Charles Miller's deep voice on War's original version.
