Top 10 Apple Commercial Songs By Emerging Bands
No. 5The Caesars – Jerk It Out
Jerk It Out has been a great success for the garage rock band The Caesars. The song has been licensed in movie trailers, reality shows, videogame and movie soundtracks, TV series and of course, in commercials such as the iPod shuffle one.
No. 4Brendan Benson – What I’m Looking For
Prior to teaming up with Jack White in The Raconteurs, Brendon Benson had released three solo albums; the last one spawned the song What I’m Looking For which was used in the iPod Touch commercial. He’s currently working on album number four which we're sure will have songs featured in even more ads.
No. 3The Fratellis – Flathead
The Fratellis are a Scotish Rock Band who owe much of their success to Steve Jobs and his Euro centric taste in music. Despite not being a single, Flathead did well in the UK music charts thanks to strong download sales.
No. 2Feist – 1234
Feist is a 2008 Juno award winning Canadian singer who gained a lot of attention from her 2007 album, The Reminder. The album featured 1234 which, you guessed it, was in an iPod nano commercial which made sales of the single jumped from 2000 to 73,000 downloads a week.
No. 1Jet – Are You Gonna Be My Girl
Jet was relatively unknown until Apple featured Are You Gonna Be My Girl in their original iPod commercials. The band reissued the single and it ranked higher on sales charts the second time around. Are You Gonna Be My Girl has since been featured in a plethora of movies and videogames.
