John Darnielle Dreams of Law & Order: SVU StardomPosted by Tiffany Wan
Whenever you hear the trademark “ching-ching” that kicks off a sordid new Law & Order: SVU episode, I’m sure your first thought is, “Gee, this show could use more indie rock!” Enter John Darnielle, lead singer and lyricist extraordinaire of The Mountain Goats, who’s had a hankering to appear on the show since first mentioning it in a New York Magazine interview. Someone had the bright idea to start a Facebook group devoted to getting Darnielle and the rest of The Mountain Goats a cameo on the long-running crime drama. We urge you to join the cause, because God knows that show needs a ratings boost from the mid-twenties/early thirties, highly literate, and consistently jaded demographic. Here’s to seeing if the power of suggestion can convince the head honchos at NBC to make Darnielle’s dream come true.
