"Chick Magnet" "I'm Okay, You're Okay"

"Chick Magnet" is an MxPx single released in 1996. It was released for the album Life in General, but there is a live, acoustic version on Move to Bremerton, a demo version on Let It Happen, a live version on At the Show, and a remastered version on Ten Years and Running, making it the most-released MxPx song.

The song is easily recognisable from its vocal bass solo, which was featured as the background music of the official MxPx website during the late 1990s and early 2000s when the site's appearance was a garage. The "Dude, you a mad chick magnet," line from the intro of the song is taken from the movie Mallrats and is spoken by the character Jay.

The song is played during a scene in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.[2][3]

The cd single has two b-sides, a cover of the old jazz song "Blue Moon" and an early version of "Educated Guess", which would later become the sixth track of the album "The Ever Passing Moment"
