"Peg" is a song by rock group Steely Dan, which was released as a single from their 1977 album "Aja".

The guitar solo on the track was attempted by seven top session guitarists before Jay Graydon's version became the "keeper". Rick Marotta played drums on the track.

Michael McDonald can be heard providing backup vocals in the choruses; keyboardist Paul Griffin can also be heard improvising background vocals in the final chorus and fadeout.

This song is heavily sampled on the 1989 song by De La Soul, "Eye Know."Peg was covered by Nerina Pallot, in 2007. Her version was produced by Richard X.
