Lost frequently featured commercial, non-original music. These songs usually play from diegetic sources such as record players but occasionally do not. The show also featured original songs.
The show first introduced "Geronino Jackson" as a band so obscure that none of the survivors had heard of it. References to the band later appeared far more frequently.
Dirt Spigot is a fictional band briefly referenced in two episodes. In "Fire + Water", the director of the Butties Diapers commercial says that he wanted to hire Dirt Spigot instead of Drive Shaft. In "Confirmed Dead", a poster for the band can be seen in Mrs. Gardner's grandson's room.
