    nick -
    i think the song is called "21st century boy". i also dug the commercial and a quick search on napster found it. i can't remember the artist, but i don't think it was t-rex...but i'm not sure.
    i'll try to remember to check and post.

    There's a new Toyota commercial for their 0% financing program and they use "Saved by Zero" by The Fixx.

    Well, I think it is for Dodge, Aerosmith has the
    title song 'Just Push Play' in a commercial.
    Ugh!!! Every year that goes by I dislike one of
    my childhood bands even more. [​IMG]

    The Cult's 'She Sells Sanctuary' was used as well, but I can't remember for what car. Nissan? Mitsubishi?

    - That is T.Rex "20th Century Boy" for
    Mitsubishi.
    - Is the ACURA commercial with Sarah Vaughan?
    - Also ... Here's one Edgar Winter "Frankenstein"
    for Buick.

    Mitsubishi made great use of "Ready to Go" by Republica a few years ago. Actually helped their record sales in the US, I hear.

    I love that "20th Century Boy" -- I'm so caught up in the tune I always forget what car the ad is for! I actually didn't really get into that song until they used it in "Velvet Goldmine", a FABULOUS movie with a great soundtrack.

    How about the bastardised version of Jethro Tull's Thick as a Brick? I laughed when I saw that.

    New Nissan truck commercial uses an R.L. Burnside song off Come on In. I couldn't beleive my ears when I heard this. I've been meaning to write his record lable to confirm this.

    As for the Maxima commercial. It wasn't the beginning where he screams, it is actually towards the end, but I also think they did some editing of the song. I have Who's Next and I'm pretty sure they've slapped various pieces together for the commercial.

    Updated/cleaned up the list - thought it may be needed since we don't have AdCritic.com anymore. [​IMG]

    I think that one of the Acura commercials uses the song Mas Que Nada. I don't recall if it was for the CL or TL, though.

    Scott - I can't recall those commercials but thanks for the input. I suppose the music may jar something loose up there. [​IMG]
    Leo, do you know who performs that song?
