Tokyo Police Club Pay a Visit to Wisteria Lane

November 17, 2008 5:07 PM ET

In case you were busy watching last night's TRL finale, you missed a strange collision of cultures over on ABC, as Canadian indie rockers Tokyo Police Club guested on Desperate Housewives. The plot of the episode centered around a "Battle of the Bands" night at a club somewhere close to Wisteria Lane. The TPC boys appeared as a group called Coldsplash but played one of their originals "In a Cave." Two of the band members even had lines in the episode. "I walked past Eva Longoria at one point but I didn't say hi," said keyboardist Graham Wright. "You know how it is, they probably had better things to do than talk to us."

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
