Sleater-Kinney on 'The L Word' (2006)
Six months before the late, great post-riot-grrrl band called it quits, Sleater-Kinney graced Showtime's lesbian drama (their introduction: "These sisters are bad to the bone!"), though their performance is mostly peripheral to the main plot. (To wit: Tennis star Dana finds out that — spoiler alert!—her cancer diagnosis is far more serious than she thought.) But the band delivers a blistering version of "Jumpers," the intensity of which matches the moment of the show's other characters discovering the severity of their friend's health issues.
