Who is that?
As a service to my readers and web searchers everywhere who have been asking who is that band in the Mac iPod commercial…
You know the one…the one with people dancing all over the damned place to some song that sounds a little bit like “My Generation” but really isn’t.
The band is Jet. It hails from Austrailia and opened for the Rolling Stones.
The song is called “Are you going to be my girl?”
When asked about the song, the band’s frontman had this to say:
Nic wrote the songs thinking he was going out to dance clubs again and all the girls were just the same. He was like why don’t we have this song called “Just Like Any Other Girl”. F**k that man, why you have to be so negative. Lets just have a cooler name and maybe you’d have a bit more luck if it was called “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” – it’s a bit more of a positive message and the ladies might actually like that.
So, there’s your answer.
