Don't know if this has been posted before, but do you happen to know the name of the song that concludes The Wire's original Season 5 teaser, that HBO started showing last fall? The entire thing is just words being typed on a white computer screen, ending with the lines, "And...McNulty is drinking again / A new not dawning." At this point THE WIRE comes up while this absolutely incredible song with a sick beat starts playing...

I tried finding Ground Loop Music - Eurotrash too, but couldn't find it anywhere. The problem is that the makers of The Wire often use very underground (local/Baltimore) artists. I'll keep looking.

@ I'll try and find the teaser tune.

I've put the question up on a forum, I hope they'll be able to answer.

Hey thank you for this blog it is awesome! I was wondering if you could help me find the song I've been looking for the song plays at the end of season four episode 11 when the owner's wife drops the bomb on her husband about the affair she had with Malik, that scene takes place right outside the club right in front of Malik and his girlfriend.
