Ok in the last day, i've heard The Yardbirds "Shape Of Things" on a Target add.

And just now they played Hearts "Barracuda"for a car commercial.

I've seen more Classic rock music getting popular and I know all the bands are reuniting.

But seeing them in adds now has really surprised me. Anyone else noticed these?

^Hmm...I know the popular ones like Rock & Roll are always on, though I never expected the early 60's stuff style stuff.

Nah man, it's just that they are not making jingles anymore...they are just reusing old songs...

I have definately noticed a change in songs and soundtracks if that's what you want to call them in adverts, wether that has anything to do with an increase in popularity is another question, I just think it's a new place to go in terms of advertising, something original that people can relate to. I think it's also interesting to note who their target market is, more times than not, you will find the target market are the people who were around that time, in their bandanas and shades chillin' to the sweet sweet sound of a Jimi Hendrix, or Led Zeppelin.

Advertisers gear their adds towards the generations with the most disposable income so the music they pick for the adds is taken from whatever era of music was popular when the customers were younger. Lets say just for example if you were 15-18 when Appetite for Destruction was popular expect to hear them in adds when you are 40
YA GOTTA HIT IT ON THE ONE

i think it has somethiing to do with liscensing maybe. i think the liscense on most of those songs are running out, thus allowing anyone to buy them and use them for whatever purpose they deem fit.

Yeah, classic rock is used a ton in commercials.

Uh oh, mainstream sell outs......

Look at The Beatles and their songs.

You sire, have it exactly right. I've noticed that in the past 10 years it changed from 50s and 60s music up to the 70s. I dread the day that I'm middle aged, I really don't want to hear 90s pop and the hip hop crap they have going on today.

They play those songs in the adverts because they are probably trying to appeal to people of 40-50 year sold who remembered the songs in their teens and now have families etc and the cars a most likely family cars.

Do you know how long those licences last? I thought it was something like 50 years, that's why everyone is going mental and making new Jimi hendrix DVD sets, and Elvis Albums have suddenly boomed.

Yeah, cause it's not like there wasn't pop music in the 80's that dominated like today
