They're advertising for a speaker company. I'm kinda gutted by this. So depressing. Even the wording of it makes my skin crawl.

I am even more offended that they recorded a jingle for it, to the tune of Sonic Reducer: "Sonos I use, sir, ain't no Loser"

Sweet jesus. Isn't that song about not selling out? The fucking irony.


yeah. and why they are dressed up in flamingo suits and repeatedly heiling hitler in the video is especially strange. but i get it.

This was too good to leave bottom paged.

Minutes later they're in twitter asking. People to donate to the hurricane relief fund.

I suggested they donate all the money they made from their sonos deal.

I don't expect a response.

maybe you should call up your pal EV and ask him what the deal is

like literally, what was the deal - how much did you get paid. and did you donate it all to charity, or did you use it to buy ferraris

and if it was ferraris, did you get the optional hooker blowjob cleanup kit

I mean why does anyone care about this supposed "selling out". It changes nothing about the music or band. I just don't get why this bothers anyone. I'm still here because I don't care if the band does commercials.

but their sense of moral superiority is predicated on them not being sellouts

PhatJ gets it.

Sonos sucks though. I dont enjoy the product though i can understand why some might. Its too finicky for me.

Agreed. I wanted to like it but it's a pain in the ass. But now that Pearl Jam is involved I'm completely on board thanks Sonos!!

They've never been morally superior though. They just did things the way they wanted to, and they still are. People put them on pedestals, no one is forced to listen.

The Sonos promo doesn't really bother me, this was so much worse:



(Worse on an aesthetic level, I can't get worked up about "selling out" or whatever.)

Post subject:  Re: 11th album rumors and speculation

Sonos is ostensibly a music product. To get worked up about that is ridiculous.

I'm with Spenno - the easy low point of Cameron Crowe's career. And he made Aloha.

Post subject:  Re: 11th album rumors and speculation

Honestly, I don't give a shit about the whole 'selling out thing' that stopped mattering years ago. It's more about the ironic joke of the choice of music used.

I agree with Spenno though, the Target commercial was more embarrassing than anything. It points out the transition I think we've all gone through:

90's
Friend: Do you like Pearl Jam?
Me: Fuck yeah!

00's
Friend: Do you like Pearl Jam?
Me: Uh, yeah they're pretty good.

Post Target Commercial
Friend: Do you like Pearl Jam?
Me: Go fuck yourself.

Don't be so spineless, Sarge. I've never felt one bit of embarrassment about calling PJ my all time favorite band. If people don't get it or think that's lame, I couldn't care less. They're likely the same people that never heard a single PJ song (other than Last Kiss and Just Breathe) after Vs. or Vitalogy. So their opinion about PJ is worthless to me anyway.

I love my Sonos system. Clean, no wires. It's freaking awesome.

Ok, now go make a record so I can blast it on my system, fellas.
