Hey, I was just mindlessly watching the show Nip/tuck (I've got 5 channels, not a whole lot of selection when you need to burn brain cells and time!)   and during this dinner scene where these people were negotiating a foursome, the score underneath was undeniably a rendition of Chunga's Revenge.  WTF????? sounded like a synth accordion sound playing the lead.  weird.

Thanks Damien!   boy that sure threw me for a loop.  I'm still left to ponder though, how did Chunga's wind up on that show?  it's a brain boggler!! it definately worked for the scene though.  Exciting yet foreboding.  thanks!

Interesting coincidence...I was driving home yesterday listening to the local NPR station when a version (not FZ)of Chunga was playing in the background...about 6pm CST!

Salutations one and all. I also watched Nip/Tuck on this side of the pond last night. I missed all the dialogue in that scene 'cos I was so excited about FZ being used in such a mainstream TV show. Thought i'd check up on line for info. I stumbled across you guys. Thanks for filling in the gaps. <br>Regards, G.

I'm sure somebody somwhere will try to use FZ music and try to pass it off as their own.
