Cool that this show featured both a song by the greatest ever American rock and roll band (the Velvet Underground) and a song from an album whose title is clearly meant as a VU tribute (i.e., to White Light/White Heat).

The music that plays during the scene where Veronica is driving back from the prison is also the same music used when Veronica is with Amelia DeLongpre at the beginning of 1-17 "Kanes & Abels"

I really think the music used at the beginning of the episode is score. If you listen to Josh Kramon's "Dog Tags" score, you can see the definite similarities.

I think that the song playing while Veronica is driving back form seeing Abel Koontz, i think that it isn't a piece form a song even though Josh Kramon's 'Dog Tags' has a cheek similarity to it.

This song is also used in the scene where Veronica signs away her college money to put Lianne in rehab.
