    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Howlin’ for You” is a song by The Black Keys from the band’s sixth album, Brothers.

    “Howlin’ for You” is featured on the soundtrack of the EA Sports video games, NHL 11. and NHL Slapshot. The song is featured in the films and in TV commercials for The Dilemma, Limitless, The Guilt Trip, Moneyball, and Dark Shadows. It is used as the theme song to the Australian police drama television series, Cops L.A.C., and has been featured in American television series, Entourage, CSI: Miami, Once Upon a Time, Suits, Detroit 1-8-7, Chuck, Necessary Roughness, Suits, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Prime Suspect. and The Chicago Code. The MLB’s Toronto Blue Jays use it for their Home RUn song (except for Jose Bautista) and the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes use it as their goal song.

Music Video

    An official video was released for the song. The music video — a parody of a sexploitation film trailer — was directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, starring Tricia Helfer, Diora Baird, Sean Patrick Flanery, Christian Serratos, Corbin Bernsen, Todd Bridges, and Shaun White, as well as Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of the band in the role of “Las Teclas de Negro” (Spanish for “The Keys of Black”).

    A Behind-the-Scenes interview with Piliero, filmed during production of the video, has tongue-in-cheek commentary and brief clips of the cast members describing their characters.

    The video was one of five nominees for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Rock Video.
