Trivia
Throughout the film, the band Green Day is referenced many times. Green Day's then producer Rob Cavallo is the film's executive producer. This isn't by coincidence. Cavallo has never produced movies, only albums for Reprise Records.

In the original short story, Angus' dad was alive and both of his parents were gay. When the movie was first shot, Angus' mom was straight and his dad was gay. After the final cut, the filmmakers decided to abandon the "gay parents" situation for good. The beginning - and some key scenes - were re-shot with George C. Scott in his present role as Angus' grandfather.

Weezer was asked to write a song inspired by this film and Rivers Cuomo read the script and wrote two songs: "Wanda" in which he sings from a first persons point of view with lyrics such as: "my mom drives a big rig, and my daddy's gay" which referenced the the original script, and "You Gave Your Love to me Softly". Only the latter was used.

In the opening football scene, when Angus makes a tackle, the football clearly falls to the ground. In the next shot, it is still seen soaring through the air.

Q
What is the song called during the credits?
A
"J.A.R." by American rock-band Green Day.---------------------------------------------------------------- 2nd contribution: If you/someone wants to know about the song during the OPENING credits, it is "Am I wrong" by Love spit Love. (Lead singer is from the Psychedelic Furs). This song is on a Love spit Love album, and is also on the 'Angus' soundtrack. The version on the soundtrack has the marching band blended in with it (pretty much how it is during the credits). -Echdrum
