that does suck, and I can see how people thinik of that as selling out.
I admire bands that really try to not do that (Beastie Boys for one, sue th shit out of anyone who uses their music, and will never use itto sell anything)
However, many bands do not own copyright to their songs, instead it is held by the publishing company or by the record company, and these bands are screwed from the get go. They have no say in whether their music will be sold to some ad company in 5 years to advertise lipstick.
