Friends TV show

On this day in 2004, those Friends made their way into a New York coffee shop for the last time. We celebrate this televisual milestone with some tunes that featured in this classic comedy.

R.E.M. - What's The Frequency Kenneth?

As heard in The One With Two Parts, where's it's played at Phoebe's party. Hipster. Well, it was hip in 1995.



Cornershop - Brimful Of Asha

A great party tune played in The One With The Fake Party. It was about a party. That was fake.  


The Clash - London Calling

Joe Strummer's ode to Thatcher's Britain was the music played as Joey and Chandler tour London in The One With Ross's Wedding.


Fatboy Slim - Rockerfeller Skank

The Norman Cook big beat stinker was played in a party scene in The One With A Girl Who Hits Joey. Joey was hit by a girl in this episode.


Foo Fighters - Everlong

An instrumental version of this Foos classic was included in The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part II as the pair got married.


Interpol - Untitled

Which song would ideally soundtrack the sight of Joey getting it on with Rachel in a hotel in Barbados? That's right, an Interpol album track.
