"Scooby Snacks" is a song by alternative rap/rock band Fun Lovin' Criminals. The song is from their debut album Come Find Yourself. It is the band's biggest hit single to date.

The song contains samples from Quentin Tarantino's movies Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs.[1]

Most of the song is rapped, with the exception of the chorus which is sung. The "Scooby Snacks" in the song is a reference to diazepam, also known as Valium.[2]

In 1996 it was voted #14 in the list of the hottest 100 songs of that year by listeners of Australia's Triple J radio station.

The song was re-released in 1997 where it became more successful, especially in the United Kingdom. The song can be found on various compilation albums, such as the first edition of the MuchMusic Big Shiny Tunes series, The Best... Album in the World...Ever! (volume 5), The Best Bands... Ever!, The Best...Anthems...Ever! and 101 Indie Classics.

The single initially peaked #22 in the UK Charts. It later peaked at #12 on re-release (coupled with their cover of 10cc's "I'm Not In Love", but was not as successful as the 2001 "Loco" single, a #5 in the UK, despite this song arguably being not as well known as "Scooby Snacks".
