  • Tommy from Elmhurst, Ilit may be about how society drives people insane and all but NOT AT ALL about the last thing
  • Rod from Lisboa, Portugal"Flagpole Sitta" has been the theme music song of British sitcom Peep Show since the second series.
  • Danielle from Centerville, Tn"Flagpole Sitta" was remixed with techo/ dance music by artist Hairy Canary. I received a lot of sampler cds from a local music store and there was one that had "Flagpole Sitta" on it. It includes the original radio release, a techno/ dance music remix, the techno version acapella, and the instrumental techno music. I love the original versions of the song (edited and un-edited) and I though this was a neat take on the song itself.
  • Cal from Baltimore, Mdthis song is great i mean its fantastic just a simple gritty song that is great to just do whatever to the song is great
  • Tj from Champaign, IlThose "facts" are completely made up.

  • Sasha from Winchester, MnThis is a really awesome song and it's great to dance to.
  • Sean from Toronto, CanadaThere are two versions of this song being circulated; one that is "censored" (taking out the "God" in ***damn) and one that is "uncensored" (leaving it in).

  • A.j. from Chicago, IlThis song is in American Pie (1999), Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003) and Scooby-Doo 2 (2004).
  • Magda from Addison, IlI TOTALLY agree. My friend and I were hanging out while listening to this song, and I started to do an air guitar (yeah, I'm a dork). I jumped and landed on my bed back-down, but I landed on the edge and I completely wiped out. My friend still finds this hilarious to this day.
