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
