Podcast #4, Major League with Exene Cervenka

A sports comedy that's still hilarious over 25 years since its debut, Major League can rightly be called a classic. The soundtrack has an interesting collection of mostly-forgettable blues rock, along with one incandescent cover by Los Angeles punk band, X.

We speak by phone with X's frontwoman Exene Cervenka about the band's work on the soundtrack, as well as their other cinematic work for X-Files: Fight the Future and The Decline of Western Civilization.

Randy Newman, "Burn On"
The Snakes, "Walkaway"
X, "Wild Thing"
X, "We're Desperate" (live)
