Hi, my name is Stereo Mike...

So I was watching Daria tonight, and it was an episode with the song Drinking in LA by Bran Van 3000 in it. I remember when the song came out 8 or 9 years ago in the summer (I feel old, what the hell?), and how insanely catchy it was. I don't know whether it really took off anywhere else but it made me feel crazy nostalgic for the end of the 90's, so I looked for it online, and imagine my surprise when I found out Brit band The Twang re-recorded it last year. They're pretty different as The Twang is a northern (midlands, whatev) band from Birmingham and Bran Van 3000 is from L.A.

(It was the episode "The New Kid" just incase you were wondering - when Daria meets the home-schooled kid on the yearbook committee).

EDIT: Bran Van 3000's from Montreal. They're just singing about LA.
