Enterprise Car Rental is using Rusted Root's "Send Me on My Way". Goddamn hippies!

Hearing Johnny Cash's exquisite cover of "Hurt" being used to sell some godawful video game is the single most depressing thing that's happened to me this month.

HAHA...!  Who doesn't love the Man In Black, but I'll bet Rick Rubin and Tom Petty and those folks who collaborated on the resurgence of Johhny's career with those (very nice) remakes eventually started calling him "Johnny Cash Cow"  -- and he probably didn't mind.

Just saw a spot on the Giants pre-game for Blimpie -- damn, I didn't think they still existed. What with a Subway or a Quiznos on every other corner, I haven't seen a Blimpie in years.  "America's Sub Shop" is their new (?) slogan.

H&O's "You Make-a My Dreams" for Nissan.  And I swear I'm hearing the intro to Donovan's "Barabajagl" on a Ford spot.

Heard a KT Tunstall track as the bed of a Walmart ad last week. Don't think they actually used her lyrics, but regardless. Have you no shame?
Let's get right to it.

and speaking of that evil corporation: it's "Walmart feat Pitbull"... as if he wasn't a crappy enuf rapper without being a whore too. Well, he'll be the only Latino in Alaska, I guess...

Pitbull May Head to Alaska in Walmart Campaign
