I will admit it does bug me on a "that was my song, how dare they use it to sell soap" level. On another level I feel it is kind of fitting because the song itself was originally created to promote that artist/band as well as their album and now it almost kills two birds with one stone promoting another product as well as introducing that song to a new generation.

Anyway, what do you think?
I think the only thing that really 'bothers me is when people only know that band because of a commercial or product. For example whenever Danzig is brought up, or watched on youtube, every comment is "OMGG THIS IS ON GH2 I LOVE THAT GAME !!!!".

And if you dont beleive how annoying that is, go see for yourself.

I would rather my song be known for being in guitar hero then for selling shoes, but I get your point and it is a very valid one.

Yeah, I was wondering how long it would be until this song was used in a car commercial.

Wow, I've never heard that song. When it started playing I assumed it was Genesis. Is that Brian May singing?

No, Roger Taylor (the drummer)... it's from A Night At The Opera (track 3). Brian May sings on track 5... "39".
