  • This is one of the two Parodies of Jack and Diane written by "Weird Al"
  • Although this is lyrically a parody of John Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane," the two songs are totally different musically.
  • There are also musical nods to other blues rock songs such as "Eyesight to the Blind" by Aerosmith, "Long Train Runnin'" by The Doobie Brothers, and "Bad to the Bone" by George Thorogood and the Destroyers.
