Last week we posted a Keanu Reeves meme that included a reference to ‘Stacy’s Mom” that some of our listeners didn’t quite catch and sent in questions about it. Like “Who the f*** is Stacy’s mom?” and suggest about where we could put things that aren’t all anatomically correct. As it turns out, “Stacy’s Mom” is the only hit song from a band called Fountains of Wayne and was released in 2003. In addition to the catchy premise of a young boy enamored with the hot mom of his girlfriend, the music video also featured supermodel Rachel Hunter in the title role (right).
The song reached number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the band’s highest-charting hit in the United States, and was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Vocal Pop Performance.
