Pete Shelley has allowed McDonald's to use Buzzcocks' What do I get? to TV advertise McDonald's new Big Flavour (the flavour being sawdust) Chicken Wraps?!
In the words of another Buzzcocks song: oh shit...

Yeah, it's a bit disappointing.
I remember when some cosmetics company wanted to use Sting's Don't stand so close to me for their antiperspirant commercial.

A bit of a let-down, to say the least.

If The Kids Are United by Sham 69 was used by McDonalds without permission because Jimmy Pursey and the other guy had sold the rights back in the day and didn't retain any control. Not saying this is like that, but we can hope.

I feel similar when I hear Queen being used to sell furniture - I'm guessing the artists are bound by some ancient contract or other. Brian May can't be comfortable with his music being used to flog chairs (nor does he need the money).
Nothing is sacred.

I've never been a fan of the buzzcocks but then they were way before my time. Am I missing out on anything. I have eaten maccas though.

The voiceover of Moz's book, David Morrissey, did a voiceover for McDs two years ago.

Nothing was said then....

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.

You don't listen to any older music? The Buzzcocks were from the punk era.

It's Buzzcocks not The Buzzcocks. BuzzCOCK and Pete SHELLEY. I can see the chicken link.....Surely this goes against all that Punk stood for? It's bad enough having to watch Euro football and be constantly bombarded with Coke and McDonald's ads. Therefore, my kids can't watch football... never understood why companies heavily linked to junk food and obesity are allowed to sponsor sporting events. Anyway i digress.
Big shout-out to all those middle class English parents who like to "slum it" and treat their kids to a "Maccy D's"as a form of reward.......braindead.

They're alright. Some good songs here and they're but nothing that ever wowed me. Like George said they're from the British punk era. Kinda like the jam at times kinda like the damned at times
