In the 1990s there wasn’t a single television show more popular than Doug. The show, which featured a cast of middle and high-schoolers from all walks of life, was all about the things kids cared about.

We watched as Porckchop the dog decked out his house with a satellite dish. We also watched as Doug coped with the changes in his life by listening to his favorite band: The Beets. Doug has long gone off the air, but the spirit of The Beet’s music will live on. We’ve collected the best of the band’s tunes over the years and a few extras.
