Though “Gilmore Girls” may seem like a simple sitcom about a mother-daughter duo; at it’s core, the show truly caters to music lovers.

That’s probably because creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is one herself and therefore made sure to include the classics — including XTC and David Bowie — in the soundtrack, as opposed to peppering it with songs at the top of the charts.

Thus, as the premiere of “Gilmore Girls” celebrates its 20th anniversary on Oct. 5, the show — and its music — remains timeless. From its iconic theme song, to cameos from such bands as Sonic Youth and The Shins, and the infamous town troubadour battle, Variety has compiled “Gilmore Girls'” 10 best music moments.
