  • Lyrics
  • This song was featured in the film Euro Trip in 2004. It is the bands only hit. In the film, Scotty is dumped by his girlfriend Fiona. He later finds out at a party that Fiona had been cheating on him for a long time, hence the title "Scotty Doesn't Know." The band plays at the party and that is when the song is played and Scottie finds out the truth. When he travels Europe, he finds that song has become world famous. >>

  • The 2006 Hannah Montana song "Rockstar" (performed by Miley Cyrus) sounds a lot like this. Lustra guitarist Nick Cloutman said: "Although we are very flattered that Ms. Cyrus took this route, we would have preferred some credit." He added, "We don't want anything other than credit for the music we worked so very hard on. We don't believe for a second that Ms. Cyrus knew what was happening and was only following instructions."

  • Sara from Melbourne The domain name of the Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, was bought by an enterprising young man when it expired. The domain now (October 2018) points to a website that plays “Scotty doesn’t know” on repeat. It was so popular that the website soon crashed.
    "So, the PM forgot to renew his website and it expired today ... Most fun I've had with $50 in a long time," wrote the architect of this delightful event on Facebook. Pretty apt choice of song. Scotty is clueless, he’s gotta go.
  • Emmett from Canadian, TxDon't tell Scotty!
  • Landon from Winchester, OhGood song. How dare that over-rated b1tch Miley Cyrus copy off of it! She better pay up or Lustra should file a copyright lawsuit!
  • Lexi from Lansing, KsI had no idea Matt Damon played the lead singer...
  • Eric from Milltown, InThis isn't where I parked my car!
  • Marc from Sullivan, MoDoes anyone know where I can get the "Scotty Doesn't Know" song in different languages like they played in the movie?
  • Hmmm from Los Angeles, CaThe band members of Lustra are friends of the directors of Euro Trip, and were doing them a favor playing this song in the movie. Matt Damon is also a friend of the directors and did them a favor by playing the lead singer in the movie.
  • Brian from Rochester, NyIn the movie Eurotrip, the lead singer singing Scotty Doesntt Know is Matt Damon.
