OK, thought I would clarify a bit on the mission of this crappy fucking blog. First, I'm only calling out musicians that I think are good or respectable. So that Third Eye Blind song from 1996 being used for a theme park in New Jersey doesn't count. Neither does the Cadillac commerical using Immigrant Song. While I was a little dissappointed with the latter example, I didn't really care.
I do, however, care that Andrew Bird sold his soul for a chance to reach (gasp!) millions through the completely credible form of media we call the 15 second spot selling rooms for Marriot Hotel Chain in between legs of So You Think You Can (bom bom bomp) Dance. Can't hear 'em on the radio, but you can apparently hear them on a commercial for Marriot Hotel Chains.
