Thanks!

It comes from novelty song from back in 1963 by the Trashmen called Surfin' Bird. (Which was stolen from the Rivingtons, but that's another story.)

Nowdays, I would guess that most people know it from the TV show Family Guy beating the song to death in a possibly offensive way.

A whole new generation is ‘hearing the word'

Not "most people" - possibly "most Americans". :)

Not even most Americans...

It's "...most people (who know the song) know it from.."
