Theme Song: Dum Dum Girls

“I Don’t Care”

Collage by Minna

Aaaaaah! Dum Dum Girls did our theme song! Excuse us while we jump around in celebration.

Meanwhile, relevant facts: Dum Dum Girls came from the beautiful brain of singer/songwriter Dee Dee three years ago. She lives in New York City. The rest of DDG are Jules, Sandy, and Malia. They live in Los Angeles. You can listen to more of their music here and watch a bunch of awesome videos here.

Dee Dee describes this song, “I Don’t Care,” as “a testament to self-love.”

I Don’t Care

Written, recorded, and produced by Dee Dee.
Mixed and mastered by Alonzo Vargas.

    Amazing!!

    downloading the theme song has only worked for me like twice. :(
    It says it downloaded but then I click it and itunes opens, but it’s not there and nothing happens.

    • Anaheed May 28th, 2012 8:15 PM

      Try pressing “option” while you click the link.

      • Kathryn May 28th, 2012 11:04 PM

        I tried it but the same thing happens… I am using Safari. It downloads, but it won’t play or download to itunes.

        • Kathryn May 28th, 2012 11:07 PM

          Nevermind! I switched to Firefox and it worked!

  • faithdarwin May 28th, 2012 9:01 PM

    I JUST saw them at Sasquatch on Saturday. They were SO. GOOD.

  • cleobea May 28th, 2012 10:03 PM

    The downlaod is not working for me!! I really want it, this is a great song. And the song keeps stoping after 1:25. Would you know why?
    thanks

      Try hitting OPTION while you click the link. As for the song stopping — try a different browser. We’ve had this problem before and it seemed browser-specific, though I can’t remember which browsers worked and didn’t work. I think Safari works and Chrome doesn’t…don’t remember about Firefox.

      • Anaheed May 28th, 2012 10:44 PM

        Update: it seems to play fine with Firefox.

    I LOVE the background! <3 Dale Cooper, perfect man.

    This is so great! So glad I saw them preform at The Getty last week. Before the show, I was eating at the table right next to theirs and I felt like such a stalker.

  • Caden May 29th, 2012 2:48 AM

    ‘Dee Dee’, ‘Jules’, ‘Bambi’ and ‘Sandy’ are just about the best girl band names ever! :P

    Soooo good. Apparently my computer doesn’t have the right plugin to download this, but I’m just listening to it on repeat anyway.
    After it’s been the theme song, will it be available on YouTube or iTunes or whatever?

  • SpencerBowie May 29th, 2012 6:17 PM

    Wonderful!!! Love!
