Friday Afternoon Video: Music from Commercials featuring Sleigh Bells, Santigold, M.I.A. and More!

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

A veritable smorgasboard!

In 2013, the trend continued of bands on the fringes of Pop/Top40 play being featured in television commercials. While some may criticize these bands for 'selling out', it's important to realize that with record sales continuing to fall to the Digital Age, this is an important source of income from many artists. Also, in my opinion, companies are doing a better job of finding new (to me) and/or interesting artists to feature in these spots. So here are 10 songs from television commercials that are currently or have recently been playing. See if you can guess which commercials in the comments.

1. Santigold - Disparate Youth

2. Goldfrapp - Ooh La La

3. Sleigh Bells - Rill Rill

4. M.I.A. - YALA

5. Passion Pit - Take a walk

6. Of Monsters and Men - Dirty Paws


7. Tame Impala - Elephant


8. Hanni El Khatib - Can't Win Em All


9. Kanye West - Runaway


10. Toyota Sienna - Swagger Wagon


Happy Friday!
