Intuit QuickBooks have paired the rambunctious playtime of little girls with the raucous sounds of a classic Slade song in their new ad campaign for 'Goldie Blox,' which you may have seen and heard in a high-profile Super Bowl commercial last night. If you missed it, you can watch it above.
In their native England, Slade are one of the most cherished and biggest selling bands of all time. From their humble beginnings as the N-Betweens in 1965 through their mega hits in the '70s, their loud, brash style, both musically and visually, endeared many a listener over the decades. An amazing run of 17 U.K. Top 20 singles in a row, as well as a batch of classic LPs are proof of that popularity. Over the years they have been acknowledged as an influenced on the likes of AC/DC, Cheap Trick, Kiss, Def Leppard and Oasis to name but a few.
