Can't think what it's for, but basically sell out whenever possible, if you don't you're an idiot.
Which song? When? Who? Where? How? Why?
because yo la tengo are a small band?
and also whats wrong with it? good going. thats the goal of most bands in a financial sense ,to get on ads, its one of the only ways to make money, people forget, its their job also.... would you turn down a payrise?
but I'm not sure you even meant something so oblique so I shan't shout.
It's definitey a pleasant bonus, and it means they can carry on making music..
I need product people, PRODUCT!
bands/labels employ people who's primary job is to hook them up with ads, movies, computer games etc... i didnt mean that bands personally have the goal to get on adverts, but the band as a 'business' has that goal, the team that surrounds them and works for them has them kind of things in mind to help further them, thats their job.
why not let them get something out of it, why have a problem with that, i dont understand, especially if you like the band, surely you should like to see them getting something for their efforts.... and if also it introduces people to their music, thats an added bonus too....adverts have helped springboard the career of lots of people.
unless they are going against some principles they were vocal about in the past and its not like yo le tengo were fugazi or something, dont like ylt though
but it wouldn't surprise me. Hell they even appeared on the GILMOUR GIRLS.
fuck i hate that show. My ex girlfriend used to make me watch it all the damn time.
