    I never heard Everybody Wants Some, until I saw Better Off Dead. Great VH song, IMO. Even better movie. GenX classic fer sure.

    As good an Eddie kerraaaaaang! intro as any.

    From the movie Fight Club.

    I once watched two movies in line that had that same song by pure coincidence! (One is The Book of Eli. I don't remember the other one!

    The film "Everything is Illuminated" introduced me to Gogol Bordello.

    Here's the theme song.

    Surf was never a style that interested me as a younger player, I knew of the Ventures but that was it.
    Pulp Fiction introduced me to Dick Dale with Misirlou ...

    This gem opens the movie Furlough. Then it's all downhill from there. Not that it's a terrible movie, but it's hard for anything to get much better than this song.
