They often perform songs attributed to animated projects, or other forms of television entertainment. They sing the theme songs to ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'', ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouseClubhouse'' and ''Series/HigglytownHeroes'', as well as the film ''Film/TheReplacements'' and wrote Dr. Evil's theme in ''Series/AustinPowersTheSpyWhoShaggedMe'' (in the style of Shirley Bassey). Some older readers may remember the videos made for two songs from their 1990 album ''Music/{{Flood}}'', "Particle Man" and their cover of The Four Lads' song "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)", on ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. Others might remember their late '90s ShoutOut to the cartoon ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'', which, along with several other their music videos, would later appear on ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam''. They also worked with the creators of ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', resulting in an official music video for "Experimental Film" starring the H*R cast, as well as some jam sessions with the Homestar puppet. As well, "Birdhouse In Your Soul" appears in an episode of ''PushingDaisies''. Their cover of "Dog on Fire" (originally performed by their friend, Music/HuskerDu guitarist Bob Mould) has been the theme song of ''Series/TheDailyShow'' ever since Creator/JonStewart took over.

And the old man whose face you see in all their videos is named William Allen White. He was a famous journalist in Kansas from UsefulNotes/TheEdwardianEra to UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The band were secretive of this for quite some time in case his surviving relatives were to sue them.
