August 7, 2005

On this day in 2005, the Showtime cable TV original series Weeds debuted.

The series, about a drug-dealing suburban mom, is notable for using the song “Little Boxes,” by folk artist Malvina Reynolds, for its theme song.

The folk song, originally released in 1962, had a slight revival in popularity.


Frances Bean Cobain uploaded a popular YouTube video of herself lip-sinking to the track.
