Another example of this trend, is the Drew Barrymore’s "Whip it". Although the soundtrack did not have
the strong hit like Sweet Disposition, it is still an decent one, including Go! Team, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah!, and The Raveonettes. Moreover, one of the main characters was played by Landon Pigg, who is a Nashville-born singer/songwriter. I fell in love with his music since I first heard his most well known song; "Falling in love at a coffee shop" I am sure that you have heard of this song somewhere. It is very cheesy but I love it :)
In the movie, Landon featured in a band called Turbo Fruits and performed a song called "High Times"
The latest movie that I really came to realize the strong tie was "Going the Distance", a romantic comedy with Justin Long and Drew Barrymore. I saw a movie with my Korean girl friend, EunJi, who just went back to

The movie, Going the Distance, was clearly awesome exposure to the public for the band. However, if the Boxer Rebellion did not have something to take, it would have not worth doing it. -which they do have something to take! It is always fantastic to see these unknown artists to get more publicity to these who are “music blind”.
I cannot wait to see them in a live to see how good they sound at a gig!! Here are a couple of songs from the movie by the band. Enjoy!
