I watch a lot of football. That means I also watch a lot of SUV and truck commercials. During last night's National Championship game—the one "for all the Tostitos"—I could swear I heard the music of Portland band Derby in a Ford Explorer commercial. Sure enough it was Derby's "If Ever There's A Reason" (from 2008's Posters Fade) scoring the Explorer ad.

At least someone in Oregon had a good night.


Derby - "If Ever There's A Reason"

Derby has a new digital EP and 7-inch entitled "Madeline" due out next month and a release show at the Doug Fir on January 28th. If you can't afford a new Ford Explorer, Cam Newton will lend you the money.
