TV Commercial Music: Playstation 3 Ad

I saw a few good commercials yesterday during the Super Bowl. One that stuck with me was the following Playstation 3 ad:

I liked the song. It has a good evil-broadcast-from-a-podium, “can you dig it” vibe and some pleasing rhymes. So, in the wake of the popularity of my last two commercial music posts, I thought I’d do some research.

The song used is called “Ladies and Gentleman” by Saliva. Remember Saliva? They sang that song “New Disease” or “Your Disease” or “I’m Diseased” or something, it was crap. This song, however, is fierce as hell.

Grab it from iTunes here.

For those that are interested, here are the lyrics:

“Ladies And Gentlemen”=

Ladies and gentlemen please
Would you bring your attention to me?
For a feast for your eyes to see
An explosion of catastrophe

Like nothing you’ve ever seen before
Watch closely as I open this door
Your jaws will be on the floor
After this you’ll be begging for more

Welcome to the show
Please come inside
Ladies and gentlemen

Boom
Do you want it?
Boom
Do you need it?
Boom
Let me hear it
Ladies and gentlemen

Boom
Do you want it?
Boom
Do you need it?

Boom
Let me hear it
Ladies and gentlemen

Ladies and gentlemen good evening
You’ve seen that seeing is believing
Your ears and your eyes will be bleeding
Please check to see if you’re still breathing

Hold tight cause the show it not over
If you will please move in closer
Your about to be bowled over
By the wonders you’re about to behold here

Welcome to the show
Please come inside
Ladies and gentlemen

Boom
Do you want it?
Boom
Do you need it?
Boom
Let me hear it
Ladies and gentlemen
