She wondered if they added lyrics to the theme from Austin Powers to make the song, or if the Austin Powers team just took the lyrics off an existing song and used the background music. Do you know? We tried to look for info on the band but we couldn't find any at our usual sources.
Hey Jamee, thanks for watching my vid. ^_^ The song actually came out before Austin Powers was made up (late 80's I believe). I'm pretty sure the rap song samples from an older song and I believe Quincy Jones took parts of that old song and ceated the Austin Powers theme when the movie appeared. Unfortunately, I don't know who made the original version of it.
