If you have watched any primetime television or new release movies you have most likely heard the bombastic sounds of Snow Patrol. In the past year alone the Scottish group has been featured in more than ten films and television shows; their single "Chasing Cars" was featured on the ABC show Grey's Anatomy not once, not twice, but three times. They are also Zach Braff-approved, with songs on both Garden State and The Last Kiss.

Watching a performance of theirs, it is quite easy to see why they have achieved this level of popularity and success. While their music borders on formulaic, it is nonetheless entertaining and they are a pleasure to watch. In the vein of Travis and Coldplay, their ballad-driven rock is filled with crescendos and sing along choruses that are the soundtrack to relationships and heart breaks and they had the nearly full Greek Theatre crowd singing along with their big hits, "Run" and "Chocolate."
