Semi-Important Question-Help Wanted, But Not Demanded

I would appreciate anyone's help with this.  After watching the last episode of "24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic" (which is what all cool people do on Saturday nights, duh!) I've come to two conclusions:  I will never understand why I like film and televised shows ABOUT hockey and rarely watch the NHL myself and I KNOW I've heard this music somewhere else before.

It came on around the 37/38 minute mark and I literally stopped everything and searched for about an hour and a half.  I mean, after all, that's what I literally get paid to do.  I couldn't find playlists anywhere.  HBO only has the episode 1 playlist up so far, and I actually couldn't rest knowing that this mystery song lay somewhere out there in the great beyond, but still hidden from me.  I stumbled across a website that had several songs that the "24/7" series uses regularly and started taking some chances by putting the song names into Youtube.  I found a band that sounded like they could definitely have made this song and just took a listen to some of their other stuff and got lucky.   Apparently, some of their stuff has been in some video games/ video game previews, but I'm almost positive I've heard this in a film trailer.

Initially it reminded me of the music from The Town trailer, which does sound similar.  So here's the song that I got lucky to find (lucky because now at least I can sleep)


and just for fun, here's the trailer for The Town, because I think it's one of the best trailers of 2010:
