I'm very pleased with the proliferation of zombies recently, especially in places where you wouldn't normally see them! They appeared on House and on Fringe (although they're not that weird on Fringe, I guess). I'm going to assume that this is due to the awesomeness of The Walking Dead.
I am such an old person now. My means of getting "new" music is watching CW shows like Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries haha.
