If, like me, you came of age in the 00s and were lucky enough to be raised by such insightful teen comedies as American Pie, The Girl Next Door, Road Trip, and other films your parents just shut the door and let you get on with masturbating to, then you probably know of the "comedy adventure" EuroTrip starring Scott Mechlowicz, Jacob Pitts, and Michelle Trachtenberg. If not, here is a brief summary: Ohio nerd Scott Thomas Mechlowicz gets dumped by his high school girlfriend, and in a whirlwind of heartbreak and insecurity decides to embark on a quest across Europe to find and apologise to his sexy German pen pal, Mieke, whose advances he rejected because he thought she was a dude called "Mike". Hilarity ensues. Sex is had in locations that do not lend themselves to pleasure. A bunch of Manchester United fans led by Vinnie Jones save the day. And lots of other unrealistic events are strung together to justify it being classified as a "teen movie" instead of an "adult film". Anyway, more importantly, Matt Damon is in it. A shaved-head, tattooed, pierced to shit Matt Damon. Even the more seasoned fans of EuroTrip - by which I mean those of us who have watched it more than once at a crap house party - may not have been aware of Damon's cameo as the guy who sung "Scotty Doesn't Know", thus informing Scotty, and the entire graduating class, that he's been sleeping with his girlfriend for ages.
Originally written for the 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, which draws inspiration from the real life story of the band's high school friend Sheridon, whose middle name was Scotty. The song is written from the perspective of the person with whom she is having the affair. The song was eventually released on Lustra's album Left for Dead. The song peaked at 53 on the U. Billboard Pop chart, 39 on the Digital Songs chart and at 75 on the Hot , mainly due to the high amount of digital downloads.
