Buzzcocks - ever fallen in love.....for the Rav 4 advert

Jose Padilla - Adios Ayer (feat. Seal) ...for the Yaris

There was an earlier one for the Avensis Jimi Hendrix...Vodoo Child, but you knew that one, right.

No I think he means the Rav 4 - Still Feeling Rebelious ones. Like where the guy washes his Rav 4 only to realise he's been conned into washing someone elses identical car.

At the end of the ad there's a couple of seconds of some 80s power/glam metal with screeching guitars and equally screeching vocals.

That's the advert, but it ain't no power/glam metal band!

Maybe Spectre knows? He is a bit of an old rocker isn't he?

I think you will find that it is Skunk Anansie. Not sure which song though.

not sure if it's skunk anansie.. sounds like a bloke doing one of those high-pitched heavy metal screeches a la Saxon or someone like that. It's definitely someone wearing leather and demin with a poodle perm on top!
:D

It's been bothering me for weeks. I posted a thread about it which no-one replied to.

It's not Skunk Anansie. Could be overkill. Oh I don't know.

there was a rav 4 commercial that used Buzzcocks as it's main track... but the one we're talking about is a mere snippet of power metal right at the end...

Heathen!! Go forth and buy one of those three minute heros compilations immediately, actually if you can find it, the one called Three Minute Heros is fantastic!

You sound like a Skunk Anansie fan... how much you gonna give me for my 1 of 50 7" vinyl test pressing of Little Baby Swastika?

Lex, leave off with Skunk Anansie - they had a female vocalist. The singer on the RAV4 ad has balls, mate; hence the unusually high pitched tone.

I am very disappointed that there are no old metal heads out there!!!

What ever the song is, it's also on Tony Hawk on PS1. And it sure ain't Skunk a' bleedin nansie! The truth will out if we can find the track listing for that peticular game.....

Still no definitive answer. Somebody here claims that the music was written especially for the advert (according to Toyota). I suppose that is the most likely answer, as if it were a pre-existing piece of music surely somebody would have identified it by now. :confused:
