I was wondering if anyone else has noticed that the song "Runnin' Wild" by Airbourne...is pretty much everywhere. It's on a good few commercials, it's a track on a couple music rhythm games (Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band), it's a music track on some sports games (ex: NHL 09), they were on tour with some big name bands over the summer with Mayhem Fest '08, and there's probably many more examples than the few I posted. I don't know how popular they are, because my small town of 7,000 is dominated by rap and pop music, with the scattered metalhead every now and again, but they must be getting a lot of recognition if they're almost everywhere in the media. Just as a little question on the side, how popular are they in your area, either in comparison to other bands/artists or maybe like a rough estimate of the amount of people (in a %) that listen to them, etc.?

Not popular. First time I heard of them was at Wacken 08.
I've never heard of them. They probably just got a really good publishing deal if they appeared everywhere at once.
Haven't noticed it, avoiding popular music is 90 percent of the reason I'm a shut in.
are they the ac/dc copying losers???
thats better than rap and pop. airbourne are pretty cool. im the only fan in my area
if i'm honest i thinkg about 5% know or have heard about them maybe 1/2% asctually listening
Yeah but they're pretty good, and they don't sound exactly like AC/DCare they the ac/dc copying losers???
