Try not to begrudge bands i like making a few quid but sometimes…

Dead Can Dance on that new BMW advert :disappointed:


Bellbottoms in Baby Driver
Remember hearing Rancid in Fun With Dick and Harry too

Dick and Jane even

“Today” by the Pumpkins in that credit card commercial.
“Gravity Rides Everything” by Modest Mouse in that car commercial.

Black Flag - Nervous Breakdown.

Can’t remember the ad because ADVERTS DON’T WORK ON ME.

Ha wow

Tetley ruined Bill Withers for me for over a decade. Same with British Airways and Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell.

that one jeep commercial that used the instrumental intro to VU’s Heroin.

there’s also something weird about Sheetz having Devo’s “Freedom of Choice” on its playlist.

I spent hours one winter on hold to British Gas sorting out some fucking pre-paid meter bullshit, with the strings looping in the background.Ruined it.

My mum still religiously watches Greys Anatomy despite it being on series 246, so have caught a fair few episodes over the years. Terrible show but the soundtrack is a beaut.

This. I have to dive for the mute button or change the channel as I refuse to have this beautiful song associated with a car ad for ever more in my head.
