Sorry.

I don't believe I've ever heard that commercial.

Hopefully they didn't **** up the song, though - it's a good song and Steppenwolf is awesome.

Wendy's just hired somebody to do it because it's cheaper than paying the band. It's not too uncommon, Staples got somebody to do "Takin' Care of Business" a while back. I guess billionaire corporations are pretty budget conscience with their advertising.

Yeah, Steppenwolf is awesome.

I don't mind bands doing covers, but when they **** it up... AH!

On a similar note, did anyone see Taledega Nights and get really confused when they had "Paint it Black" in French. Not terrible, but still strange.

I haven't seen Taladega Nights yet, but it looks hilarious.

From commercials/previews, it sounds like it has a really nice soundtrack.
