"Get in Line" is a song by the Canadian alternative rock group Barenaked Ladies. It was released in 1999 in the soundtrack of the TV series King of the Hill. It failed to get a noteworthy chart position, unlike the band's next single, "Pinch Me". The song was released as a promo 5" and CD single and later appeared on the band's compilation release, Disc One: All Their Greatest Hits (1991–2001).

Music video[edit]

The music video, the first of many of the group's videos directed by Phil Harder, features the band playing the song live action in the setting of King of the Hill. It was shot in a warehouse in Seattle. Kevin Hearn has a "puffy" look due to chemotherapy. Their manager Pierre has a cameo dressed as Fidel Castro. Pierre went on to dress up in several more videos. The same day the video was shot, the band did another photoshoot, in the nude, for the now defunct web magazine called Bliss.

The video for "Get in Line" is featured in Barenaked Ladies' DVD Barelaked Nadies, as well on the King of the Hill Season 1 DVD set as a special feature (Disc 3 w/ Dale Gribble).
