It's jaw dropping. But I hate it when Tarantino does the pop archeology for all the lazy kids.

What Tarantino movie had the Coasters on the soundtrack?

Death Proof

At least half of "50 Coastin' Classics" is absolutely perfect, as far as I remember.

At least 80%, if you ask me. (And, curiously, there's actually 51 tracks on that collection. And it's not like there's a hidden bonus track or anything - all 51 are listed on the cover. And I've definitely mentioned that discrepancy at least once here, so zero search results is kinda puzzling...)

Anyways, "Run Red Run" for me. And I wish I could've voted for "Framed" or "One Kiss Led To Another" or "The Hatchet Man". Or "What Is The Secret of Your Success?", which I think does "What About Us?" one better. But it's all good anyways.

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

one year passes...

Surprised "Hog" didn't get any love in this - - it's been in regular rotation at the local monthly retro singles dance party and I sort of started thinking of it as a universally beloved classic. I love it anytime the Coasters (or any old rock act, really) start name-checking junk food.

The first line of the Coasters' Yakety Yak is "Take out the papers and the trash." Was there curbside recycling in the 50s?
