Songs Used in Advertising That Are Just Plain Wrong!!

NPR did a nice piece on songs that are used inappropriately for marketing products.

#1 = Janis Joplin - Mercedes Benz for (of course) Mercedes Benz
Here is Janis singing about capitalism and money being evil and they are using it to hawk luxury autos

#2 = Creedance Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son for Wrangler Jeans
CCR singing about waving the red, white and blue then fade out. Next line is "when they sing 'Hail to the Chief' they should point the cannon at you"

#3 = Iggy Pop - Here Come Johnny for Norweigan Cruise Lines
Are we to assume that illegal drugs and booze are accepted on NCL cruises?

What are your favorite misses?

I'm not sure about inappropriate, but some others are just plain wrong:

Led Zepplin for Cadillac??
The Ramones for Cingular Wireless


Jerry
I'm sure I'll think of others soon....

Etta James's "At Last" is currently being used to hock cat food.

Engaged couples all over the world are frantically trying to pick another first-dance song before it's too late.

Jerry,

I think it is very inappropriate. I never associated LZ with Cadillac - still can't.

I cracked up the first time I heard Lust for Life and saw that commercial. How does it go? Somewhere around the climbing wall you realize this isn't an ordinary cruise? I think seeing Iggy Pop in the lounge would scream at me that this isn't an ordinary cruise!!!!:rar:

Actually, considering the current plight of GM, maybe they should consider either of the following:

Nobody loves you when you're down and out.
Brother can you spare a dime.

Oh, I don't know, Randy. "Been a long time since I rock and rolled..."

Gee, I can't even remember the last time I rock and rolled. "Hey, honey, did we ever rock and roll?"

:lmao:

I hate that Caddie commercial. All those cars are doing a lovely little ballet and the Cadillac comes barging in, breaking it all up and being a bully. And the fact that they've associated a LZ song with it is downright rude.

Not that I'd EVER buy a Cadillac anyway. It's a Geezer car. (I probably just offended a hundred Covers...sorry!) :D

That LZ Caddie commercial reminds me of that "Boys of Summer" song. You know, I'm showing my youth here, but I never really 'got' that part of the song until some wannabe punk band redid it with a Black Flag sticker.

What was that old song (i was very young, but it was popular with my parents generation...)

Trailer for sale or rent
Rooms to let for 50 cent
No pool, no (something), no pets
Ain't got no cigarettes.

I can't even remember who sang it, but it was a real cry in your beer kinda song. And for all the youngsters, when it says rooms to let for 50 cent, that didn't mean there was a vacancy for a rapper!:lmao:
