Flansburgh says, "This two chord wonder was originally recorded in demo form by the legendary, now-defunct New England combo the Clamdiggers. Members of that band were in the group Mente, who performed a locally notorious song called "Bobby Orr" ("greatest hockey player in the world- bahhhh-none!"). Mike was channeling Eddie Van Halen during this take. That's my best/worst John Entwistle impersonation on the fuzz bass at the end."
Written By: Nat Freedberg (Lord Bendover) and Ted Widmer (Lord Rockingham) of the Clamdiggers.
The Newport in the song most likely refers to Newport Beach, CA, where the curls are heinous.
Filmed at The Transit Musem in Brooklyn, The Music Building, and other NYC locations.
