A song written by "The Trashmen" in the 1950's, which was recently featured on the family guy episode "I dream of Jesus".
Brian and Stewie on the couch, Surfin' Bird playing in the background:

Stewie: "Brian, I don't feel so good".

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
