Music: Bohemian Like You

If there was some award for consistently getting your songs in the background of teenager-oriented media, the Dandy Warhols would probably win it. Their stuff has been played in everything from "Veronica Mars" to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" - whenever you need mid-tempo alternative rock, you can usually count on a Warhols song to pull you through to the next scene (or, in some cases, serve as your opening theme):

This clip of a rainy live performance of "Bohemian Like You" from Pinkpop 2003 shows off some of the Dandy Warhols' willingness to experiment with instrumentation. It gives them a bit more of a complex sound than most similar groups. Between keyboardist Zia McCabe's organ-flavored tones and the freaking trumpet right in the foreground, you can tell this isn't just another garage band:

"Bohemian Like You" is one of those singles that you can really dance to. The song also has a neat music video that I won't post here, because it's NSFW.
