And why care about the commercials? I don't know why you allow that to "mess up the meaning of the music." For you to enjoy any piece of art, you need to separate the art from the artist or whatever, and examine it per se.

Apparently your over-analytical view of art ruins your ability to enjoy and interpret the songs. Just let it go and try to enjoy the songs for what they are instead of what they're not, and all your concerns will melt away.
I find it really hard to disagree with anything in this statement.


Its like this:


Some people love to grow flowers...

Some people love to pick them and bring them into their home...

Others love to stop and smell them...

and many are just plain allergic to them.


Not sure if you get where I'm going with this...but I've always felt that its a great way to desribe all that encompasses art, and those who view it.

The experience is not the same for everyone. Plain and simple

I'm less upset about U2's music being in a commercial than I am about their music being associated with the stinkin' Raiders.

U2 Gets Their Boots On During NFL Network Super Bowl Ad

Band's New Single Is Soundtrack To Net's 'Run' Commercial In Big Game

Mike Reynolds -- Multichannel News, 1/31/2009 8:07:58 AM MT
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band may be performing at halftime, but Bono and the boys will have a presence in Super Bowl XLIII this Sunday as part of NFL Network's commercial that will "run" during NBC's coverage of the Big Game.

Irish super group U2 will provide the soundtrack to NFL Network's Super Bowl XLIII commercial.
"Get On Your Boots," the group's newest single, will be featured during the spot, entitled "Run," which showcases Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden, beginning a training run that continues through the NFL off-season. The commercial. according to executives, illustrates that NFL Network is where "Football Season Never Ends."
This marks the sixth straight year the NFL's in-house network will have an advertisement in the Super Bowl. In addition to NFL Network the commercial touts NFL.com and NFL Mobile Live.
"This spot demonstrates that the season and passion for football never ends for players, fans and for NFL Media," said Dena Kaplan, senior vice president, marketing for NFL Network, in a statement. "When all you want is football, we're the direct connection to the NFL all year long."
