    Walmart and AC/DC

    The opening riff to Back in Black by AC/DC is being used by Walmart in their Xmas commercials. - I quit Xmas.

    haha...I'm pretty sure they had an exclusive deal with Wally World to sell their last album.

    I had the same reaction when I heard "When I'm Sixty Four," in an Allstate ad! Though I did laugh.

    Heck they used "lust for life" to sell a cruise ship.

    for the record if you dont know, the song is about heroin.

    I forget which truck company it was, but they were using 2oth Century Boy by T-Rex several years back and I just heard it again for some other product. I guess money is to be made, no matter what opinions are out there.

    How about using the Pogues "if i should fall from grace with god" to sell subarus, using 3 kids and  mom driving around.

    Do they have any idea what the song is about?

    I will give them good taste in music, but really.

    If they are going to use a song like "Back In Black" in Xmas ads...

    ...why not go all the way and use Black Sabbath's N.I.B., the letters supposedly are for Nativity In Black....or the birth of the antichrist.

    Heck, it's not about religion anymore anyway. It's all about sales...money ...and capitalizing on the public's lust for buying gadgets.

    Might as well say the antichrist has taken over Xmas and he is Big Corporate Business. He is the 1% , he has hijacked the holidays and it starts appropriately with "Black Friday."

    I wish it wasn't true.
