Albums recorded with GarageBand: Are there any?

Does anyone know of a recognizable song or album that was recorded using GarageBand? Albums recorded using GarageBand simply to prove you can use GarageBand to record an album do not count. I am not aware of any but kind of curious.

While not a song or album, Top Gear used it to create the background music in their India episode. Not sure which season but I don’t think they went to India more than once. GarageBand has these loops which are fun to play with. They are grouped into many ways but one of them is “themes” which might have 5 loops of Middle Eastern instruments. For example, there will probably be a couple of percussion loop, several oud loops, and a wind instrument. They are all in the same key and tempo so when layered, they create music! It is very intuitive and easy to use.

So it caught be by surprise when the Middle Eastern song I had created started playing in the background of Top Gear while Richard Hammond was riding a motorcycle on a bad road during a monsoon. It was not a similar song, it was exactly the same song. The truth is, the odds of that happening are higher than it might seem. They combined the same loops I did because they sounded good together. That was just an odd coincidence. The fact Top Gear was using GarageBand for some of their background music was unexpected.

Any more substantial examples?

That makes sense. GarageBand was developed from Logic after Apple bought Logic. I did some Wiki-research.
