In the late 1970s, brothers John and Dan Osborn of Buffalo, New York wrote a musical tribute to Buffalo Chicken Wings as a parody of early 1960's "car crash" songs. After years of singing and playing "The Chicken Wing Song" on a piano at parties for friends, these same so-called friends raised the money to have the song produced and distributed on the most reliable technology of the day: vinyl records. Under the shingle of Serious Dude Music and Publishing (named after the lead investor who was, and still is, a "Serious Dude") a business plan was hatched and implemented. A full band was needed and soon the talents of arranger and guitarist Bob Wascura, stand-up bass player Ki Webster, and saxophonist Darryl Brown joined John Osborn (piano) and Dan Osborn (vocals) to take the Chicken Wing Song to the next level. One thing was missing though - the kind of back-up vocals that would recreate the flavor and feel of the early 60's "car crash" songs such as "Tell Laura I Love Her", "Last Kiss" and "Dead Man's Curve". With the arrival of Doris Moore, Jackie Albarella and Kathy Vogel (who would forever after be known collectively as "The Celery Sticks"), the Chicken Wing Band was complete. On a crisp Fall evening in 1982, the song was recorded from early evening into the wee hours at Mark Records in Clarence, New York, and the first launch of "The Chicken Wing Song" took place on Thanksgiving weekend a few weeks later.

In 1982 digital recording did not exist, nor was there any way to distribute music other than through a physical product through an established record label. For this independent production, it was boxes of vinyl records and good, old fashioned "pounding the pavement" that defined the launch. Once the song was successfully recorded, the producers went to record stores all over Buffalo and Notre Dame, Indiana (where Dan Osborn was a student) and left hundreds of copies to be sold on consignment. In the end, only a few hundred copies were sold, but not for lack of publicity and airplay. The song was played nationally on Dr. Demento's syndicated radio show as well as locally on The Danny Neaverth Show on WKBW-AM in Buffalo and Notre Dame's student radio station, WVFI. News features and interviews appeared on WGR-TV in Buffalo and WBFO, the University at Buffalo's NPR station. A front page article in The Buffalo News covered the original launch, as well as articles in USA Today and The Notre Dame Observer. It is believed that the 1980s limitations of form and distribution for independent music kept this from hitting the charts on a national level.

After doing a deep dive on YouTube, the earliest video I found posted dated back to 2007 by theretardedgansters they alluded to the song being from an audio clip being sent around with phones (the era of flip phones, before smartphones.) Someone in the comments alluded to it being from the early days of AOL. I'm still searching for answers, but I've found a few leads.
