"Scotty Doesn't Know" is a song that was written exclusively for the 2004 film EuroTrip. It was written and performed by the American rock band Lustra. Its intro bears similarities with The Church's song Reptile. It was eventually released in their 2006 Left for Dead album where it was heavily downloaded on iTunes. It peaked at #53 on the U.S. Billboard Pop 100, #39 on the Digital Songs and at #75 on the Hot 100, mainly due to the high amount of digital downloads. It contains numerous lewd references to how Scotty's girlfriend Fiona (played by Kristin Kreuk) has been cheating on him with Matt Damon's character for an extended period of time. In the film, the song becomes something of a popular phenomenon: a week-or-so later in Bratislava, the song has been remixed and is playing in a popular nightclub. By the end of the film, it has become so widespread and (presumably) popular that Scotty's best friend Cooper is able to use it as his cell phone ring tone. The song is noted by several characters in the film (including Scotty's own family) for having a "catchy tune".
