"How Bizarre" is the first single by New Zealand group, OMC, released in the band's home country in 1995, internationally in 1996 and in the United States (though only to radio, not as a retail single) in 1997.

The song was a chart hit in many countries, first reaching number one in the band's native New Zealand and being one of the few songs by a New Zealand artist to reach number one in Australia. It also reached number five in the UK and number four on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart. It sold in excess of two million singles worldwide.

A parody of the song, "Stole My Car" was created by Rock 99FM Rotorua announcer Dene Young in 1996 the song was later released to other radio stations around New Zealand and was included on Stables Label Volume 3(an album released by ZM) in 2003. []
