The Fratellis - Baby Fratelli

Remember about ten years ago when Smashmouth released the song "All Star," and suddenly you couldn't turn around without hearing that song? It was under the opening titles of "Shrek," it was under the closing titles of "Mystery Men," it was in commercials, it was in the background of TV shows, and basically it was (and sometimes still is) just everywhere.

Well, this song is starting to seem that way as well. I've noticed it in commercials and in TV shows and in the background of a scene in "Hot Fuzz". I'm guessing from this video that "Hot Fuzz" was the song's big bump into fame and general media overkill.

They're not a bad pop group. Nothing I'd run to get away from.

Not yet, anyway. Maybe I'll run screaming if their music starts to become inescapable, but that hasn't happened yet.
