Cultural References

The Transplants (Music)

"Well, I figured with the cool car and the badass tunes, he'd be a cool guy."

I'm not convinced that this is a cultural reference. Really, it's a band. They show a picture of the band's CD in the show. How is that a reference? Well, maybe if they were an Austin, Texas, band and showrunner Rob Thomas was pimping friends of his...nope. As far as I can tell, they're not from Austin. Wait, apparently, Travis Barker from blink-182 is in this band? So, maybe it's a subtle reference to pop-culture marriages like Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler not lasting? Nah, probably not. Maybe they're emo, and it's reference to Piz talking about emo guys from earlier... Okay, I've just listened to a song on their website. Nope. Not emo. Okay, I give up. Somehow I doubt Weevil would really think this band is badass, though.
