From the "Lisa's Rival" episode (first aired 11 Sept. 1994) of long-running animated FOX show The Simpsons.

Smart saxophone player Lisa Simpson feels threatened about a new, smarter, better saxophone-playing girl at school, Allison Taylor (voiced by Winona Ryder). In a brief fantasy sequence wondering if it's that bad to be number two, she sees herself performing in concert with this supergroup of lesser lights (the crappier halves of Simon and Garfunkel, Loggins and Messina, and Hall and Oates). They get ready to play their number two hit, "Born to Runner-Up" before being booed off the stage. As Lisa snaps out of it, she astutely realizes, "Why would they come to our concert just to boo us?"
