THE 88
(Crocodile) If you like your pop more Beatles than Britney, check out L.A.'s the 88, who wear pinstriped suits while churning out polished, radio-ready power pop that goes down easy. Taking their name from the number of keys on Adam Merrin's piano (or maybe the velocity needed to get Michael J. Fox back to the future), the 88 recently released their second record, Over and Over. Since then, the album's tracks have been used, over and over, on shows like The O.C. and Grey's Anatomy—probably because their soaring hooks stick to your brain like a discarded piece of Bubblicious to the bottom of Ms. Spears's bare feet at a gas-station bathroom.
