"Taper Jean Girl" is a song by American rock band Kings of Leon. It is the third track on their 2005 album Aha Shake Heartbreak. A fan favorite, the song is known for its tight spiraling guitar, barely discernible, unmistakably dirty chorus, and as Rolling Stone calls it, "a final double-time explosion that, frankly, doesn't go on long enough."[1] The song is featured in Entourage season 3 episode 12 "Sorry, Ari". The song is featured in the 2007 film Disturbia and plays during a scene as well as the closing credits; however, it does not appear on the soundtrack for the film. It is also featured in the 2008 film Cloverfield and on the soundtrack for that film.
