Famine, War, global warming and here we are discussing if so called cool music should be used for daft commercials. Well, Iggy has sold out a long time ago and if I was in a crap indie band struggling to make a living out of my music I wouldn´t turn down 10000 $ from Nike or whatever. And some commercials are quite good. Just saw Unbreakable the other day and was really chuffed, that they had the Pixies´ I´ve been tired on the soundtrack. I know, it´s not an ad, but somehow the same thing.
The only two bands I wouldn´t want to be used for commercials are probably Fugazi and the Dead Kennedys.
All others are cool with me. After all, this is capitalism.

if you don’t find what you are looking for, ask for it
