Is this hypocrytical?
It occurred to me Saturday that I view old/mainstream/classic rock acts (i.e. Led Zepplin, Aerosmith) who sell their work for TV commercials as sellouts. Yet I see small/underground/unknown people (like Dabrye, the artist whos song is used in the Motorola R3 phone commercial where everything in the house folds up into the phone and Nick Drake (used in a VW commercial a couple of years ago) as being ok. They're just trying to get thier song out into the world, whereas the old acts are just trying to heap more ca$h on top of their already massive fortunes.
Is that fair?...
Bah, who cares. I've heard enough Zepplin and Aerosmith to last me the rest of my life. Sellouts.
