I heard somethong that really blew my mind today, The Damned's Alone Again Or.... as muzak. That is just so wrong!! :mad: I can almost forgive Iggy for the carnival cruise stuff, but damn, it seems soooo wrong :AR15firin :AR15firin :AR15firin. I am curious, has hearing songs from your youth selling goods and services or being rearranged into bland background noise make youfeel like this: :barf: :barf: ?
not dealing well with advancing maturity,

The one that sticks out in my mind forever: 1980, 3am in a completely deserted Mexico City airport, Muzak version of Jimi's "Voodoo Child", looped about every 45 mins. I should have been disgusted, but it was a fitting end to a 2 week trip of volcano climbing that was one surreal event after another. :freak3:

Reminds me of a Rav-4 ad featuring What do I get by the Buzzcocks a few years ago. I never would have imagined it.
The "Selling out" angle doesn't bother me, it just seems like strange music for a car commercial.

There was a radio station in Calgary used to do the "Elevator from Hell" contest, play horrid muzak versions of songs and have people guess what they were. Amazing how hard it is to recognise "Honky-Tonk Woman" slowed to half speed and played on accordian.
