"I Don't Know" is a single from the Canadian band The Sheepdogs. It was featured as the third track on their third album, Learn & Burn.[1] The main guitar riff heavily borrows from the 1994 Beck song "Fuckin With My Head (Mountain Dew Rock)", off the album Mellow Gold.


Two recorded versions of the song exist. One is found on the album Learn & Burn, while the other is on the EP Five Easy Pieces. Though the differences between these two versions are not substantial, Canadian modern rock and active rock stations generally play the Five Easy Pieces version.

Awards and nominations[edit]

On April 1, "I Don't Know" won the Juno Award for Single of the Year.[2] It beat out "Fragile Bird" by City and Colour, "Invincible" by Hedley, "When We Stand Together" by Nickelback and "Let's Go Higher" by Johnny Reid. Several media sources, including The Globe & Mail and The Winnipeg Free Press considered their win to be an upset.[3][4]
