99 Red Balloons is a song originally by Nena. Green Day would cover this song in the 90's before Only Of You, with Billie Joe singing it to the same chord progression. Billie Joe also altered the lyrics, changing the chorus from "99 red balloons, floating in the summer sky" to "99 dead baboons, sitting in my living room."

Van Gough also mentions in the original song, 99 Luftballoons, in the Network song 'Love and Money' with the line "Luftballoons in my spine."
