Video[edit]

Why is there no mention of the video? Especially the 'wigger'/geek who stars in it. I can remember the band talking about this at the time, surely worth a mention?

what's Pretty Fly for a White Guy mean?

The obvious ? lol He's good looking, but only for a white guy. (also making fun of the "wigger", as mentioned in the text, people) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ap2000 (talkcontribs) 00:53, 7 February 2007 (UTC).

Evidence Needed[edit]

"They are frequently and incorrectly attributed to "Weird Al" Yankovic on file sharing networks." We need evidence of this. I will keep it up here for now though. Skullbird11 (talk) 17:34, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

I can definitely confirm that, but I am sadly not important. 24.95.247.110 (talk) 12:03, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:PrettyFlyCover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:PrettyFlyCover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:48, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Greatest Hits[edit]

I'm pretty sure (for a white guy?) that it was the seventh track at the GH album, because of the bonus-Track Can't Repeat wich was number1. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.33.227.113 (talk) 20:41, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

"Gunter glieben glauchen globen"[edit]

thats not a German phrase, non of these words is German at all. he says "montag: lieben, lachen, loben" which means "monday: love, laugh, praise"--Dha (talk) 17:51, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Punk rock?[edit]

seriously? anyone who calls this 'punk rock' needs a kick in the head. this is made-for-radio late-90s pop. 98.197.160.186 (talk) 21:04, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Move request[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: not moved. Since our own style guidelines contradict each other, we should defer to the band's preferred capitalization. Aervanath (talk) 22:35, 11 March 2012 (UTC)



Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)Pretty Fly (for a White Guy) – Per capitalisation rules. --The Evil IP address (talk) 10:10, 1 March 2012 (UTC)


The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

Correct title[edit]

The Offspring's site is not parameter, because they have Pretty Fly (For A White Guy) as title, two prepositions with capital letter, "For" and "A". The discussion is only about the "For". The correct title for the article is Pretty Fly (for a White Guy), according to WP:TITLE and WP:CAPS. OffsBlink (talk) 18:00, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

The correct page should be Pretty Fly (For a White Guy) as the word "for" is capitalised because it's at the start of an open bracket.

Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)Pretty Fly (For a White Guy) – The word "for" is capitalised in this consensus, it's at the start of an open bracket Hadji87 (talk) 14:28, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Why? If a word is at the beginning of an open bracket, it's classed as a new sentence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.132.239.180 (talk) 19:13, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
