"Paper-route Driver" is a 1966 song by The Rutles,with the writing being credited solely to Nasty/McQuickly. Released as an A-side to the single "Paper-route Driver/Lane."
The single was released 30 May 1966 and successfully reached number One is the US, UK, and multiple other third-world countries. It was also the first Rutles singles issued without a picture sleeve available. Some bootleg sleeves were made in the 1980s and sold at auction houses, but no money was made; as they were requested by the band for their private collection of their own albums. Only 5 were known to be made, and today only one is still known to exist, in the possession of Chastity and Ron.
'Paper-route Driver' was released not long after their only 1966 album "Semi-Automatic" came out, and was their last single before the remark of Nasty claiming the Rutles were "bigger than God".
