Joe Public is a 1967 song by Stig O'Hara featured on the groundbreaking Sgt. Rutter's only Darts Club Band album.

The S.I.D. theoryEdit

Many people believe "Joe Public" is one of the many clues about Stig's demise and his replacement by a lookalike called Ftig - this is the first song written by the lead guitarist after his supposed death, and the verse "My name is Joe Public - I'm sure you all know me" is supposed to be a reference to the new guy trying to be recognised as Stig. Stig has not dismissed the rumour, as he never spoke publicly while a member of the Rutles. Dirk denied, stating that the song is nothing more than result of a Tea session.
