UNDERRATED Ted Leo’s 'Bottled in Cork': We’re not sure why this D.C. stalwart of punkily melodic guitar rock isn't yet a household name, but with a little luck, the video for this infectious mini-anthem will help. Directed by radio host Tom Scharpling and featuring comics Paul F. Tompkins and John Hodgman, Leo skewers Green Day's bombastic leap from the punky East Bay to Broadway, and the jangly song sticks in your head longer than anything from "American Idiot." >> Watch the video here on 'Funny or Die' For the record: An earlier version of this slide misidentified the director of the above video as Al Scharpling
