"I'm Gay", sometimes referred to as "I'm Gay (As in Happy)" is a song by rock/pop-punk band Bowling for Soup. It is the third single from the album The Great Burrito Extortion Case. The song is about how the band thinks people should lighten up about things and get happy.

During the writing process of this song, Bowling For Soup did some research about happiness. This research led them to the fact that Denmark is the happiest place in the world and the song was originally going to be called "I'm Lykkelig" (Danish for 'happy'). They then traced the word happy back to its original form of 'gay'.


Bowling for Soup released what is supposed to be a demo video for the song. The video shows them playing live at the final show of the U.K. Get Happy Tour, at Hammersmith Palais.
