I just heard this ad come on and nearly snapped my neck instinctively whipping my head towards the TV to see why this familiar tune was coming out of its speakers... It actually startled me. I was very literally stunned for a moment after it came on. I never expected to hear that song on TV, much less in a commercial for Subway. I dunno how I feel about it.

For one thing, it seems more like an Arby's move to use a song like "I Wanna Destroy You" in a sandwich ad, and a wasted opportunity on their part. And I am not even terribly fond of "Awby's" corny series of commercials from the last several years!

I also don't look forward to having one of my favorite songs associated with a Subway commercial for the next three years, even if it is good exposure for the band's music. I'm very possessive of my tastes. I know that's immature, but I can't help it. I felt the same way when they used a The The song in an M&M's commercial several years back. It didn't help that they completely misrepresented the bleak tone of the song.

My misgivings aside, it's kind of cool to hear it on TV, even if it is for a lame fast food commercial (Don't think the ad is online yet, so here's just the song):
