I haven't been able to find this one on the boards anywhere.

Any ideas?
I've heard it on Road Rules Xtreme, but I really don't know who the artists is. One song on TRL that's heard quite frequently as background music is "Misfit" by Elefant.
For those of you interested, another commonly used song on TRL is "On Top of Your World" by Sahara Hotnights. This song is also used on Cribs and other MTV shows.
Yeah, it rocks! I just went out today and purchased both cd's.
For anyone that's interested MTV's using Communique's "Cross Your Heart" as background music on MTV.

what's the song that they open up with? I SWEAR I've heard it b4 and it's bugging me. thanks!
Two of the songs they usually use on the TRL opening is "Misifit" by Elefant and "I'm Shakin" by Rooney.
neither of those are it. if anyone can catch the show.. it comes on MTV today at 12:30pm EST and tomorrow at 2:30pm EST. it's at the beginning like it plays when they're sayin like February 21, 2005 and it shows the camera zooming in on the windows from a building across the street. thanks!

it was a rap/hip-hop song. part of the lyrics sounded like "on the floor." i'm guessing (?) it's a david banner song since they played it when he came out
Omg I just had trl and I wasn't really paying attention. I did hear that song though. Rap. It sounded to me like (and sorry if I'm wrong), 'throw yo hands in the air, let me flo, let me flo.......... let me flo, let me flo'

Does that make sense? :(
