Adjust volume while setup assistant is running Install
When you first install OS X, the Setup Assistant may blast the "Welcome" video music at a high volume. However, you can adjust the volume or even turn it off by pressing Option and one of the volume keys on your keyboard. This will launch System prefs in the background and you can drag it to the side of the Setup Assistant's splash screen and adjust the volume.

[Editor's note: We've published the hint on option-volume adjustments before, but this is a unique application of the shortcut! As an aside (and because I wanted it documented somewhere here on the site after searching the web for the last 20 minutes), the music playing during the "Welcome!" video is "Sofa Rockers" by Kruder and Dorfmeister.]

Actually, the tune is by Sofa Surfers. Sofa Rockers the song is remixed by Kruder & Dorfmeister, not by them.

I think this is as close as you can get to hearing it online.
