"Scotty Doesn't Know" is a song written and performed by the American rock band Lustra. Originally written for the 2004 film EuroTrip, the song contains numerous lewd references to how Scotty's girlfriend Fiona has been cheating on him for an extended period of time; the song is written from the perspective of the person she is having the affair with. The song was eventually released on their 2006 album Left for Dead. The song peaked at #53 on the U.S. Billboard Pop chart, #39 on the Digital Songs chart and at #75 on the Hot 100, mainly due to the high amount of digital downloads.

In the film[edit]

In the film Eurotrip, Scotty (Scott Mechlowicz) is dumped by his girlfriend Fiona (Kristin Kreuk) for the lead singer of a band (played in the film by Matt Damon). The band performs the song at a party Scotty is attending, and is praised by many characters in the film (including Scotty's parents and, eventually, Scotty himself) as being "catchy." The song becomes something of a popular phenomenon, appearing on the radio and across the world; 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 popular that Scotty's best friend Cooper is able to use it as his cell phone ring tone.
