What is your favorite song that has appeared in a TV commercial?

There have been many..Inspired by a contact asking about some good music to get into The Black Keys.

Molson (Canadian beer) has started an ad campaign in Canada which features "Tighten Up" - The Black Keys. Here is the song from their YouTube channel (and if you do watch, mmm pocket donut, how yummy :) It's one of my favorite songs released in 2010.



OOPS forgot to post, here is the commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZDLc_qmNW4

    Fall Out Boy's "Sugar, We're Goin Down," used in an ad for a drama series on one of the major networks (I think it was NCIS or a similar show) right when the song had just come out.

    All-American Rejects - "Move Along," used on a car commercial and ads to get kids to exercise, as well as part of a promotion for LEGOs a few years back where the band was being "held captive" somewhere.

    Barenaked ladies - "One Week," used in a car ad sometime around 2001.

    Hi Harvey. Love "Season of the Witch" in the Windows Phone commercial even though I don't know why they used it. Just doesn't tie into each other (imo) but still a great song!

    Honorable mention:

    Light of the Morning by Band of Skulls (Mustang 2011 commercial) I really like this song ;)
