Hockey Paradise by Seven Williams & Brandt Brothers
I can't accept that Tampa Bay is any kind of paradise.

Mascot Mania by Jello Biafra & Mojo Nixon (from Prairie Home Invasion)
Before I found out about The Dead Kennedys, I had just assumed that with a name like Jello Biafra, you'd have to be the bass player in Fela Kuti's band. I was nearly 100 percent wrong.

Aerodynamic by Daft Punk (from Discovery)
Oscar Robertson is a classy guy. With that in mind, here's some French electronic music.

Mexican Shuffle by Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass (from Greatest Hits)
What Wikipedia won't tell you about Herb Alpert is that he was dangerous with a butterfly knife. You better believe the Tijuana Brass was careful to play their parts just right. That's the key to being a great band leader: fear.

Grand Canyon Song  (from YouTube)
I couldn't find anything out about this song. It's an enigma wrapped in a homemade YouTube slideshow. Please enjoy all of that "Ken Burns" effect.

This segment aired on February 26, 2011. The audio for this segment is not available.
