Surfing Bird – Heard it a lot in the 80s, in the Cramps version (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9-HJu6osew), though I think there also was a Ramones version. The original version by the Trashmen was from the 1960s (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Gc4QTqslN4), this one was part of the soundtrack of the 1987 movie Full Metal Jacket. Some other comments here mention it also having been used in the TV series Family Guy.
