A song written by "The Trashmen" in the 1950's, which was recently featured on the family guy episode "I dream of Jesus".

Song by early Garage Rock/Rock n Roll band The Trashmen from their debut album of the same name. The Ramones did a terrific cover of it on their "Rocket to Russia" album.
A great song indeed. Sadly most kids today only know about it due to it's use on an episode of "Family Guy".
Kid A: What are you listening to?
Kid B: Surfin' Bird
Kid A: Sweet! Which version, The Trashmen or The Ramones?
Kid B: Ummm...Peter Griffin's?
Kid A: You mean The Trashmen's version.
Kid B: No I'm pretty sure this is Peter's
Kid A: *sigh* Never mind. *to self* That's why I'm fine with Futurama
To be tricked by a forum troll into clicking on a link to a video of The Trashmen - Surfin' Bird.
Song made popular again by a recent Family Guy episode where Peter constantly sings the song.
"I totally birdrolled Carl by sending him a bug report to his email but it was actually a youtube link to Sufin' Bird."
|6.||Bird is the Word|
A phrase from the song, "Surfin' Bird" sung by The Trashmen in 1963.
The Bird = Extending the middle finger and "flipping someone off." Sign language for, "Fuck You!"
The "Word" = Originated in U.S. Prisons. Original meaning was, "my word is my bond", shortened to, "Word", meaning to, "speak the truth". See: Stephen Colberts segment on his show, "The Word".
Bird is the Word = Fuck You! Is the truth!
"I hear that the government may have to start drafting people again because they don't have enough people enlisting."
"Yea, if they knock on my door I will explain to them that, "The Bird is the Word". Fuck them and their military!"
The bird is the word.
(Taken from the trashmans song: surfin bird. This also appears on the episode of family guy - I Dream Of Jesus)
e.g. Well everybody knows the bird is the word !
