Blow in the Wind is the third album by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, released in 2001 on the Fat Wreck Chords independent record label. 'Blow in the Wind' features several tracks which are led off with musical mash-ups of, or homages to, classic Punk songs - a trend the group began on their second album (Are a Drag) with an appropriation of "Generator" by Bad Religion for their cover of "My Favorite Things", and would continue with Take a Break and Ruin Jonny's Bar Mitzvah: "Sloop John B" samples "Teenage Lobotomy" by The Ramones, "Elenor" samples "London Calling" by The Clash, "San Francisco" samples "Stranger Than Fiction" by Bad Religion, "I Only Want To Be With You" samples "The Money Will Roll Right In" by Fang and "Different Drum" samples "Gimme Some Love" by Graham Coxon. The first song begins with a clip similar to the hidden track on the NOFX album Punk in Drublic where Fat Mike attempts to find the proper pitch of the word "how" in the song "How did the cat get so fat?"
The album is made up entirely of "Hits of the '60s."
