"I Wish I Was Queer So I Could Get Chicks" is the fourth single from The Bloodhound Gang's 1996 (re-released in 1998) album One Fierce Beer Coaster. The satirical song is entirely about the belief that girls only like gay men—playing on the stereotype that gay men are often better looking and more sensitive than heterosexual men—and how Jimmy Pop, the band's singer, wishes that he could be a homosexual (so he could get chicks).[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video starts out with Jimmy Pop, who is playing a gay talk-show host named Dirk Ramrod, and his co-host, Lewis, who is played by bassist Evil Jared Hasselhoff discussing their special guest for the day, Lupus Thunder and DJ Q-Ball from Bloodhound Gang. The video then becomes a montage of some of Dirk and Lewis's (Jimmy and Jared's) favorite (nastiest) moments off the show, leaving DJ Q-Ball and Lupus disgusted and slightly amused until the video ends with Jimmy Pop and Evil Jared saying, "Come again, if ya got the balls!"
