I didn't notice this song in the movie until four years after I first saw the movie. Then one day I was looking at alist of Al song online, saw a list of songs from the UHF soundtrack, noticed the title, rented the movie again, and then noticed it in the movie. And when I got a copy of the album for christmas that year I wondered if it was longer (though it seems like it is a second or two shorter in the movie).

To think this song almost never existed, if Al got his way with the scene it appeared in UHF.


I know it's coming, so I'll just say it myself: That's what she said.

Didn't Al want "Kung Fu Fighting" (Or whatever the devil that song is titled) for the pool scene. If so, I'm glad it fell through. "Let Me Be Your Hog" is soo much better and randomly awesome!

I don't think it was KFF, but he did want another piece of music for that scene.

He had stated he wanted Kung Fu Fighting during the commentary.
New Weird Al fandom drinking game rule. Mention Lin-Manuel Miranda and if anyone just "NEEDS" to announce that they aren't a fan of him....throw away their shot.

yes, he did want KFF, but he couldn't get it because either he didn't have the money or they woudln't let him. the purpose of let me be your hog was for that one scene.

I'm so glad he went with this song. I hate Kung Fu Fighting.

I know, that song is so horrible. "Let Me Be Your Hog" is beautiful!
