No, Commercials Killed the Video Star!

TV

My DVR prevents me from having to suffer through commercials, but then I’ll watch them online? It’s nothing new that ads and TV shows are now responsible for breaking artists to the masses or most likely in this case, to a domestic audience. We knew Goose’s ‘Bring It On’ had the goods for the club, and someone at Mitsubishi thought for a car ad, too. Can’t disagree. Maybe I should stop hitting fast forward?

Also, late last year, Hum, who was one of the better spacey rock bands ever featured ‘Stars’ in a commercial for a Cadillac. Since these brief snippets of these two epic tracks shouldn’t be the only things you hear from these two acts, I present to you a song from each artist below. Enjoy.

Goose :: ‘British Mode’

    Yeah, also Band of Horses is in a car comm w/Funeral, which is very cool. I love Hum, and seeing that Caddy comm gets me pumped up! Their drummer rips/thrashes feverishly on that tune!

    It is amazing to think about all of the indie acts (among others) involved with commercials today. Such usage is certainly debatable, but both of these cuts are solid regardless of what they’re pimping.
