Unlikely songs in unlikely places

  1. So, before I get started, I just want to <strike>blame</strike> thank the denizens of the CBOX for the motivation to post this thread.

    As a little bit of a backstory, I was at the grocery store yesterday, and somewhere in between Jethro Tull and Bruce Springsteen, they played Staind's "So Far Away." In a place where you expect to hear contemporary and classic rock, Staind was just a little out of place.

    So, that got me thinking. What else could they possibly play? As I wrote on Facebook: "What's next? Stabbing Westward at a doctor's office?"

    So, Iwaku, this is what I want from you: Name artists, songs, and the place where you'd least likely expect to hear that song. Provide a video, too, if you wish -- it'll make things more convenient. ;)

    I'll kick it off with an example:

    Stabbing Westward - Save Yourself: Suicide prevention hotline.
