The Revels, 'Comanche'
"Comanche," by San Luis Obispo surfers the Revels, was not Quentin Tarantino's first choice for the scene in which Marsellus Wallace is sexually assaulted by a pawn-shop owner and a security guard. No, his first choice was the Knack's "My Sharona." "'My Sharona' has a really good sodomy beat to it, if you think about it," he said in 1994. "I could set the time by that. . . And it just seemed so funny to me." The director approached the group, but "one of the band members had become a born-again Christian or something" and turned it down; they opted license the song to Reality Bites instead.
In hindsight, Tarantino has said he's glad it didn't work out because "My Sharona" would have been "too cutely comic." "'Comanche' still works the same," Tarantino said. "It's kind of funny actually, but it doesn't break the scene."
