The 9 Best Super Bowl Commercial Songs

#1Are You Ready For Some Football (Commercials With Cool Music)?

Some people tune in to the Super Bowl for the game and other people tune in for the halftime show. But everyone tunes in for the commercials.

In 2013, CBS charged between $3.8 million and $4 million for every spot that aired during the game. This year, Super Bowl XLVIII is no exception. With an average of 108 million people watching—and listening—a couple million on a TV ad can translate into dollars not only for advertisers but also the bands and musicians featured in the spots. 

Remember fun.? The little band from New York that ended up winning two GRAMMYs thanks to their massive hit, "We Are Young"? If it wasn't for their song being featured in a Chevy Sonic commercial during Super Bowl XLVI, we might not even know who they are.

Some bands get discovered because of the Super Bowl while others just remind us, "Damn, that is a really good song." (I'm talking to you, Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide.") While you prep for the big game (and prepare to download a bunch of new tracks), take a look back through nine of the best Super Bowl commercial music moments over the past few years.
