"Los Angeles" is a single written and performed by Frank Black. It was the first track on his solo debut album Frank Black, released in 1992.[1] It served as the main theme song for the short lived but cult phenomenon VH1 talk show Late World with Zach. It was also featured in the soundtrack of Tony Hawk's American Wasteland as well as being featured in Yeah Right, a skateboarding video directed by Spike Jonze with professional skateboarder Eric Koston skating to this song. Also, a music video was made for this song featuring Black himself. The music video was featured on an episode of MTV's Beavis and Butt-head.


The song starts off with an acoustic guitar introduction. An electric guitar riff is heard after that. With an interlude back into acoustic guitar music, it ends with helicopter noises.
