I'd rather hear Macca than have to listen to 'Rock and Roll' by Zeppelin in any form, or any of the other beaten-to-death riffs ever again. Plus, a Billion dollars just doesn't go as far as it used to.

The advertisers must think they (artists) have the commercial appeal. They are trying to hit a nerve with the people that listen to 'Classic Rock' all the time or are at the end of the Baby Boomer scale. There is a part of your brain that recognizes the riff to 'Should I Stay or Should I Go', even if the commercial doesn't have any other part of the song, same thing with Plant's wailing in 'Rock and Roll', and that's what they're going for. Not quite subliminal since its out there, but the next closest thing. If I hear 'Sweet Emotion' by Aerosmith one more time, I'm taking hostages.

I think they are trying to appeal to the children of the 60s and 70s. Let's see, why don't we put a familiar Zeppelin song in the background while a Cadillac is driving around a mountain. Maybe its an association kind of thing. You can make a Cadillac, which has typically been an older man's car, and make it cool because Zeppelin makes it cool.

A lot of people would have never heard of Nick Drake if it wasn't for the Volkswagon commercial.

Whether we like it or not, for today, television is the medium. We here reading this are a bunch of music lovers - we buy CD, SACD, DVD-A, LPs, etc. etc. But any artist, whether poor or rich wants to keep reaching a new audience. Today, for artists over 25, that audience watches TV, and TV is all about advertising.

I love that to appeal to baby boomers they play all this awesome classic rock and to appeal to gen x'ers they play the Muppets mahna mahna song. I think that speaks volumes about the difference in generations...got my attention though!

I knew it was going to happen sooner or later so it's not that big of a deal to me about Paul selling his solo/Wings classics for commercials.

The sneaker commercial with Revolution was cheap proving Michael Jackson had no class.

You forgot Wonderful Tonight by Clapton. Which if I hear one more time, I may put my foot through the t.v. His After Midnight beer commercials were equally annoying. Sometimes I think it backfires.

Amen Sister.  There's a (kind of) funny story about that Michelob commercial. At the time, they'd paid Clapton (and Sinatra and Phil Collins) a cool $1 Million to do those commercials. When they aired, Clapton was in a Minneapolis rehab and was in a room when the commercial came on TV, and one of the other members said "Isn't that you?" I guess EC didn't know what to say.
