DEGRASSI SPOILERS below if you haven't seen the new episode yet. But if you watched and need to know what songs were playing, the generous Degrassi Music Team is happy to share the info and the stories behind how the songs got there!

TeenNick's Degrassi

"Bears" by Nightbox
Degrassi radio feature. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"We saw this band a year ago and they blew our socks off. If you get a chance to catch Nightbox anywhere -- do it. The song fit so well in this scene, and with some careful timing, it even accentuated Eli's frustration in the sweat lodge."

" Riverside" by Agnes Obel
Katie and Marisol have a falling out in the washroom. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"We tried a few things here, a couple songs and some score, but in the end Agnes Obel was the perfect placement. We heard her music and kept it in mind, and this bitter breaking of a long-endured friendship was the right moment for her voice to be heard and comfort us."

"Wake Up" by San Sebastian
Katie's presidential victory. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"San Sebastian was one the bands that made it through Much Music's disBAND show, and we're real happy they did. They were brought to the attention of the entire industry and so this spot is well-deserved, and the song reverbs success and triumph through the clapping and cheering in the scene."
