Tracks from Not Only…But Also have made waves on television, video games and online, continuing a trend The 88 began on their prior releases. Lead track “Coming Home” was heard in the premiere episode of 90210, while Gossip Girl showcased the piano-driven rocker “It’s A Lot”. The super-charged “Sons And Daughters” is a challenge to Rock Band 2 gamers. And in keeping with their DIY roots, their unique video for “Coming Home”, in which they spent the bulk of the video’s budget on free fuel for passing motorists at a local gas station, was featured on Spin.com and Yahoo’s “Who’s Next”.
