Sign of Our Old Age - Commercials with Alt Rock
That Strange Feeling You Get When the Songs of Your Rebellious Youth Are Now Used in a Car Commercial
Here we are, watching 30 Rock and some commercial comes on. It features this Smashing Pumpkins song, "Today." I flash back to memories of Lollapalooza 94 and my roommate remarks on how much she loves this song.
But guess what? It was featured in a commercial FOR VISA. Really Billy Corrigan? Really?
Nothing makes one feel old as all sh1t than when the songs of your youth appear in a commercial. The second worst is when you hear them in the grocery store.
I guess I'm old enough to have the anti-establishment rockers of my youth sell-out to major corporations.
