Earlier this year, I posted on the growing trend of car companies using indie rock songs in their TV ads.

As a tool to expose good music to more people, I think the use of this music is great. I just wonder if it pays off for the bands (beyond the obvious financial payoff for the rights to the song). Do people really follow up and figure out who that awesome band was on the TV? I hope so, but just in case you are someone who doesn’t, here’s just a sampling of the wonderful bands you likely listen to every day without knowing it:

Langhorne Slim
From Langhorne Slim

The Black Keys
Tighten Up
From Brothers

The Morning Benders
From Big Echo
