If you’ve never seen or even heard of Get a Life, know that the show’s influence on the cultural landscape runs deep. Perhaps you’ve heard of Dan The Automator and Prince Paul’s collaborative effort Handsome Boy Modeling School. They did the song “Holy Calamity” that you probably heard on Tony Hawk’s Underground 2 or on the soundtrack for Slackers.
