Most people probably know Rooney from The O.C.—which was indisputably the best show on TV until it was tragically cancelled in 2007—specifically from their performance at the Bait Shop during the Oliver arc in the first season. The Los Angeles outfit played their hit “I’m Shakin’,” which contains the soul-quaking chorus, “Now I’m sh-sh-shakin’, sh-shakin’ now/I’m sh-sh-shakin’, sh-shakin’ now.” Or perhaps you know frontman Robert Schwartzman—brother of Jason Schwartzman, cousin of Nic Cage and Sofia Coppola—as Mia Thermopolis’ love interest in The Princess Diaries, in which he is also a cool rocker dude and puts Skittles on his keyboard while he plays. Either way, Rooney is still apparently making music and touring: The band’s last album, 2016’s Washed Away, repurposes the Strokes-cribbing sounds of their 2003 debut with glitzy synth-pop that could be much worse.
