Portlandia isn't a show about music, but there's plenty in it for the rock nerds. The IFC comedy series, set and filmed in Portland, Ore., is the creation of Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen — both of whom have spent enough time in bands (Brownstein in Wild Flag and Sleater-Kinney, Armisen in the punk group Trenchmouth) to see the humor in amateur DJ nights and men with Pearl Jam tattoos. On this week's show, the two sit down with Bob Boilen to talk about the music they grew up with, their favorite Portland bands, and a fateful trip to the home of punk icon Glenn Danzig.Paul McCartney/WingsAlbum: Band on the RunSong: Nineteen Hundred and Eighty FiveThe B-52'sAlbum: Wild PlanetSong: Dirty Back RoadMisfitsAlbum: Walk Among UsSong: I Turned Into a MartianDevoAlbum: Freedom of ChoiceSong: Girl U WantRed FangAlbum: Murder the MountainsSong: WiresHoly SonsAlbum: Survivalist Tales!Song: Chapter Must Be ClosedIslandsAlbum: Sleep & A ForgettingSong: This Is Not a SongIke and Tina TurnerAlbum: Come TogetherSong: It Ain't Right (Lovin' to Be Lovin')
