With the popularity of the Twilight series in both the box offices and the bookstore, it was only a matter of time before we found vampires creeping around in their very own TV series. In fact, we got two. While HBO's True Blood came first, the CW's Vampire Diaries had its finger closer to the pulse of the indie music blogosphere.
Such was the case in Season 1. While vampire diehards got their dose of girl (Elena) meeting dreamy vampire (Stefan), and all the drama that follows a relationship between someone who is alive and someone who is dead, fans of indie music got Metric, The Temper Trap, Surfer Blood, and even some techno from Holland's own Tiesto.
And what vampire TV show soundtrack would be complete without Vampire Weekend? It's definitely a no-brainer. I hope the music supervisor for Breaking Dawn Part 2 also comes to that realization. More Vampire Weekend is a plus in any universe.
So whether you are a fan of vampires or not, definitely check out the musical highlights from Season 1 below, and check out the new season of Vampire Diaries Thursday nights on CW.
