Austin: the guitar/organ song played at the midway break is Jug-R-Not by The Civil Tones: http://www.gettyimages.com/music/download-songs/rock-surf-153864-jug-r-not

If we seriously want to get rid of standard algebra because too many flunk, what is the data from other countries? Or why not get rid of standard English or History or Biology? Is this the correct way to look at the problem?

Where can I find a list of the songs played in this episode? There was some really great stuff, and I'd love to hear more of it!
