"Hey, Pachuco!" by Royal Crown Revue.

OK, more 80's: This Los Angeles-based ensemble formed in 1989 and is widely credited for starting the Swing Revival Movement. Inspired by Louis Prima, a masterful big-band blend of swing and jump blues with a rockabilly inflection. Their biggest hit was inspired by the L.A. Zoot Suit Riots and popularized when they appeared on "The Mask" and "Swingers" playing it. Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough did a memorable quickstep to the song, winning Season 5 of "Dancing With The Stars". Group? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Stand" by R.E.M. It might be "inane" but I still love the song.
