Default band licenses song for Biden ad

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/...195702444.html

it's not the first time a song of theirs is used in an ad like the article says. It's a little bit overblown this whole idea that they don't license their songs for ads because they have done it before.

but whatever I saw bboy news and posted

Agreed, overblown and manufactured PR for the campaign to claim they got the first song in an ad from Beastie Boys



Long Burn The Fire. Rest In Peace Adam.

Hasnít just about every single thread for the past 10 years or so been fans dissecting minor things about anything. What is this Facebook or twitter now complaining about their timelines lol

i guess? i just never held them to their word about the ďi won't sell my songs for no TV adď line like some of yíall. just like i never pressed Greg Nice for telling me ďDizzy Gillespie plays a saxĒ when he obv didnít. it was just a dope rhyme lol.

when i saw yesterdays news i was more impressed about the quality of the ad and filed it under ďoh, thatís coolĒ more than anything else.

and for the record i always thought Yauch was talking about selling their music for Old Navy and Gap commercials and shit. i donít think he realized his fans were going to hold him to that lyric for eternity.

Thatís how I always took that line.



Yes Adam yauch was very spiritual yes he raised awareness about the situation in Tibet yea he was a great father , husband and friend but most of all he was a dope MC one of the greatest to ever pick up a mike his voice will be missed- Chris Rock

Most odd comparison of hip hop lines ever but I meant more like the headlines and story made it seem like it was exclusive breaking news type stuff. TheY license a song for a trailer itís made to seem huge, itís in a show itís made to seem huge, itís in a movie itís made to seem huge

As for your last line, I really donít care but he kinda held his band mates and family to it for eternity no? Youíre most likely not putting insignificant shit in your will. I never read it so maybe he wrote no license for corny things just cool things and political commercials
