Origin: [See Graduate, n. & v.]
"Graduate" is a song by Third Eye Blind and written by Stephan Jenkins and Kevin Cadogan. The B-side, "Horror Show", was written by Jenkins and Cadogan as well and later released on the "How's It Going to Be" single in 1998. It reached number 26 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in the U.S, and number 14 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart. Additionally, it was featured in the 1998 film Can't Hardly Wait starring Seth Green and Jennifer Love Hewitt. The band played this at the American Music Awards in 1998, changing some of the lyrics to "can I masturbate" in place of "can I graduate."
