Though Scott Weiland’s law abiding behavior has cost CSTB much content throughout 2005, I owe a special debt of gratitude to Tom Sizemore, who refuses to leave us hanging.

Having a knee-jerk, negative reaction to the use of a beloved song in a car advertisement is only natural, particuarly if you are under the age of 12. In the case of a song I associate with little else than Al Franken’s annoying testimonials for the acclaimed album that shares its name, Steve Earle’s “The Revolution Starts Now” seems to be a perfectly appropriate rallying cry for Chevrolet’s newest truck commercials. Steve has undoubtedly spent a night or two sleeping in a Chevy, and the smell is nothing if not revolting.
