Get Set Go is a band formed in 2003 in Highland Park, Los Angeles, California. They are generally seen as indie rock. Their main songwriter is Michael Torres, known as "Mike TV." They are known for a tendency to mix dark lyrics with upbeat or catchy melodies. They are perhaps best known for being heard on several episodes of Grey's Anatomy and both volumes of the series soundtrack.

The band has gone through a few lineups and name changes, originally called Vermicious K, and then All Your Bass Are Belong To Us, before settling on Get Set Go.[1]
