Well at least some Hollywood writer who has musical taste beyond Shania Twain. In the show American Horror Story there is a character called Gabriel who likes the Butthole Surfers more than the Ramones. This reviewer agrees that this boy deserves to be berated for such stupid music tastes.
This episode spawned a very nice Tumblr on the Surfers. And this one too.
However, the connection appears not to be as random as one might have thought. It appears that Kyle Cooper directed the Shame of Life video as well as the opening sequence to the American Horror Story. So that explains it. Big world turns into small world. I recommend you watch the version on the Prologue Pictures website, as it is a different cut than the one we're used to seeing.
