They are best known for some [[EarWorm catchy]] songs [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Heavy_(band)#In_media used in various media,]] namely "How You Like Me Now?" and "Short Change Hero", both of which come from their 2009 sophomore album ''The House That Dirt Built''. The former is an upbeat song that was made prominent to American audiences when it was used in a 2010 UsefulNotes/SuperBowl commercial for the Kia Sorento that featured children's toys (among them a sock monkey and a ''Series/YoGabbaGabba'' character) going for a night on the town as if they were adults. It was also used in ''Series/{{Entourage}}'', ''Series/{{Community}}'', ''Series/RookieBlue'', and at least three {{racing game}}s: ''VideoGame/{{Driver}}: [[VideoGame/DriverSanFrancisco San Francisco]]'',[[labelnote:*]]along with two other songs from the band[[/labelnote]] ''[[VideoGame/{{Forza}} Forza Horizon 2]]'',[[labelnote:*]]both the main game (on Xbox One only) and standalone expansion ''Forza Horizon 2 Presents [[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast & Furious]]'' (on both Xbox One and Xbox 360)[[/labelnote]] and ''VideoGame/TheCrew''.[[labelnote:*]]which even shares ''D:SF''[='=]s developer[[/labelnote]] The latter is much more moody in sound, and was used for the film ''Film/{{Faster}}'' starring Wrestling/DwayneJohnson and a trailer for ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity''. Both songs are also used in the 2012 video game, ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', and [[Wiki/TVTropes here]] "Short Change Hero" is used as the image quote for the last two video games we mentioned, using the exact same line. ("This ain't no place for no hero...") "What Makes a Good Man" was also used as the credits theme for ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', serving as an appropriate ending to that game's story of a FallenHero. "How You Like Me Now?" was also used as the credits theme for ''VideoGame/{{Knack}}''. A remixed "How You Like Me Now?" was used in the game ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet 3'' and a smooth jazz cover of "Short Change Hero" can be heard in ''VideoGame/PokerNight2'' (which has ''Borderlands'' characters appearing).

-->--Opening lines from "How You Like Me Now?"



They are best known for some [[EarWorm catchy]] songs used in various media, namely "How You Like Me Now?" and "Short Change Hero", both of which come from their 2009 sophomore album ''The House That Dirt Built''. The former is an upbeat song that was made prominent to American audiences when it was used in a 2010 SuperBowl commercial for the Kia Sorento that featured children's toys (among them a sock monkey and a ''Series/YoGabbaGabba'' character) going for a night on the town as if they were adults. It was also used in ''Series/{{Entourage}}'', ''Series/{{Community}}'', ''Series/RookieBlue'', and at least three {{racing game}}s: ''VideoGame/{{Driver}}: [[VideoGame/DriverSanFrancisco San Francisco]]'', ''[[VideoGame/ForzaMotorsport Forza Horizon 2]]'',[[labelnote:*]]both the main game and standalone expansion ''Forza Horizon 2 Presents [[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast & Furious]]''[[/labelnote]] and ''VideoGame/TheCrew'' (which even shares ''D:SF''[='=]s developer). The latter is much more moody in sound, and was used for the film ''Film/{{Faster}}'' starring Wrestling/DwayneJohnson and a trailer for ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity''. Both songs are also used in the 2012 video game, ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', and [[Wiki/TVTropes here]] "Short Change Hero" is used as the image quote for the last two video games we mentioned, using the exact same line. ("This ain't no place for no hero...") "What Makes a Good Man" was also used as the credits theme for ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', serving as an appropriate ending to that game's story of a FallenHero. A remixed "How You Like Me Now?" was used in the game ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet 3''.
