Surfin' Bird" is a song performed by American surf rock band the Trashmen, and it is also the name of the album that featured this hit single. The song was released in 1963 and reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is a combination of two R&B hits by the Rivingtons: "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" and "The Bird's the Word". The Rivingtons followed up their 1963 Billboard Hot 100 hit "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" with the similar "The Bird's the Word" in 1963.

The Trashmen claimed that they heard The Rivingtons songs through cover versions played by a Wisconsin band called the Sorenson Brothers, and insisted that "Surfin' Bird" was an original recording. The Trashmen were left with the performance royalties, which while certainly not scraps, were far less lucrative. This was all they got until the mid-'80s, when they filed a lawsuit against the company that had bought the recording. The Ramones gave this song new life when they recorded it on their 1977 album Rocket to Russia. Other artists to cover the song include The Cramps and Silverchair. An entire 2008 episode of the TV show Family Guy revolves around this song. When the manager removes the song from the jukebox because it's from the '60s, Peter procures it from him, then plays it constantly at home.

Produced by Jack Bates. A well a everybody's heard about the bird B-b-b bird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word A well a bird, bird, bird, the bird is the word A well a bird, bird, bird, well the bird is the word A well a bird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word. This song was, in fact, taken almost entirely from from The Rivington’s tracks Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow and The Bird is the Word. It was released in 1963 as a single and gained mainstream success, topping out at on the Billboard Top 100. Surfin' Bird has become regarded as a protopunk standard, was covered by the Ramones, appeared in the films Full Metal Jacket and Pink Flamingos and was popularized by an episode of Family Guy. Most recently, the song was referenced by the DIY South Florida rap movement some are comparing to punk rock in the song Bird is the Word.
