CNN + Local Band = Love

posted by on December 7 at 15:40 PM

A very observant Slog reader named Henri just sent us this note:

I was watching Anderson Cooper the other night and I heard Head Like a Kite. The funny thing was that I had just seen them the night before at Chop Suey. I double checked and confirmed on their website, CNN is in fact using their music as bumper music.

I think that’s pretty huge. CNN? Wow. How the hell does CNN know about Head Like a Kite, let alone use
them for their music?

Good question, but that’s pretty awesome exposure for the local band. Congrats, guys! For more info on Head Like a Kite, visit, where you can hear the band’s music and watch videos.

Isn't it funny how back in the '90s, we'd of been like, "those sellouts!!"

Times change, yes they do.

I'm a former CNN intern. It would amaze you to know how much of the work there (including off-air reporting, writing, and editing) is done by unpaid college students in their early 20s. Not surprising that some decent music might make it on the air.

I would question the sell out thing too, but I think Anderson Cooper is rad. Very very cool.

I see they released their cd in the UK and they have all this European press and press from all over the US. I don't know how local they are.
