17. I don't think that's worse than Devo's "Beautiful World" being used in a Target commercial.
Or Creedence Clearwater's "Fortunate Son" being used in, for fuck's sake, an advert for Wrangler jeans. Which consisted of lots of flagwaving feelgood patriotic imagery, and just a tiny snippet of the vocals: "Some folks are born, made to wave the flag, oooh, they're red white and blue"...and that's it. I was absolutely gobsmacked when I saw that and I think I stuttered and spluttered for a good five minutes.
