which song is in the commercial? i doubt that i would be able to see it where i am...

 

considering there lyrics and there writings i find it infuriating that they would take a sell out step such as this.

yeah they did.

 

average band on a regularly aired commercial makes anywhere from 20 to 50k dollars royalty.

 

*(Edit)* Oh.. and they might have gotten cars out of the deal.

I agree, their not the first, nor will they be the last. I admit it kinda of hurts, But there comes the time when great bands want more money, and to do so they sell their soul to the devil. It may not be the money they made from the commerical, because you are right, there probably is very little. However the money they will make from the mass public hearing the song and liking it.
