Geezers get punked

I was shocked to hear the Buzzcocks song “Everybody’s Happy Nowadays” last night, playing in the background of a commercial for … the AARP?!? I mean, the original punk rockers are getting pretty old, but it’s still pretty peculiar to hear this kind of music being used in that context. There are plenty of other Buzzcocks songs that might work well with commercials aimed at the senior-citizen crowd, including “Why Can’t I Touch It?,” “Noise Annoys,” “Just Lust,” “Orgasm Addict” and “Oh Shit!”
