This week, we traveled to El Centro College in the heart of downtown Dallas to see how students felt about The Dandy Warhols, the popular post-punk band hailing from Portland.

Although none of the participants were accustomed to this kind of music, all of the participants found a way to enjoy the vibe and beat of "The World Come On." One participant spoke to how the song is "uplifting." Another commented on how it makes for good car music.

But no matter who it was, the universal appeal was evident with this band.

And that universal appeal isn't surprising -- this band's music has been featured in everything from Ford Commercials and The O.C. to Dancing with the Stars and Chuck, which is pretty much what it takes to be financially successful in the mp3 era.

Speaking of mp3s, if you enjoyed the "The World Come On" in the above as much as the participants, you're in luck. In advance of the band's stop through to the Granada Theater on Saturday night, the Dandy Warhols were been kind enough to let our DC9 readers download "The World Come On" as a free MP3. Grab it after the jump -- where you can also learn how to win one of two pairs of tickets for this upcoming show, courtesy the friendly folks at the Granada.

Want the tickets? Just be among the first two people to email Pete with the words "Handy Dandy," in the subject line, and you're in. Good luck!

Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!

You won't need luck to grab the mp3, though. It's right here for the taking, below.
