Brass, Cash in Pocket

Another great punk/new wave song has found its way into a television commercial, and not for the first time.
"Brass in Pocket" by the Pretenders is now being used in an advertisement for Blackberry, and this is not the first time this song (the actual Pretenders' performance) has been used. The song was also used in commercials for National City Bank in the 1980s, as well as a few others, including a cover by Kelis for Hair Cuttery.
Again, an artist making some money through their own art no longer offends me, unless it occurs for some vile company or campaign.
