Best Commercial – 2012 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards
2012 turned out to be a great year for classic rock bands getting placed in commercials. Everywhere you turned, there was a famous rock song or artist promoting a video game, a car, coffee, the Olympics, or even insurance.
Acts like Kiss, Journey, the Rolling Stones, Rush, and even a more obscure act like The Seeds got a boost from commercial play. Queen‘s music turned up in a pair of advertisements, and rockers like Eddie Money and Peter Frampton both actually turned up in the commercials where their music was played.
As we look back, we’ll give you one more glance at some of the year’s best classic rock commercials. After viewing them and choosing your favorites, use the form at the bottom of this page to register your vote.
