           I personally would be horrified if i heard "the power and the
passion" on a mitsibishi commercial.

           I still think i would consider them my favourite band because i
like their music so much but i think i would lose a bit of my passion.

            They are the only band i would travel interstate for and while
that is partly because of the music it is also because i RESPECT them so

            I couldn't help but lose some repsect for them if they used
their music to flog something for money.

           Unfairly, i have a double standard when it comes to the Oils.I
didn't lose any affection for Ganggajang when i heard "sounds of then"on a
coke commercial and would probably feel that way with most other bands i

                 Except the Oils.

           For this band it is more than just the music to me.

                But hey,to each their own.

things a lot worse than playing a little rock & roll.  If you like the
music, listen to it.  If you don't like it, don't.  Why worry about whether
they've played the Fiesta Bowl halftime show or pushed Mitsubishi?  Isn't it
supposed to be all about the music?
