Wilco just wants to sell records

Some folks are so outraged at the fact Wilco has licensed some of the songs from its new album to the new campaign for Volkswagen that the band has had to post a big item on their Web site under the rather straightforward headline, "Wilco Music Used in Advertisement in an Effort to Sell Records." The band even provided this ringing endorsement: " ... we feel OK about VWs. Several of us even drive them." (I've yet to find these ads online, BTW.) Well, at least the people who don't like it when bands sell out haven't sold out yet.
