MC: No need to beat around the bush, man. They asked. They came to us and said, "We've selected this song to be in the commercial, and we're going to pay you this much money", and we said, "Uh... okay!" And you know what, I don't care. I got into music because I was in [Information Technology], and I said, if I stay in IT, it'll be okay... but I'll never know if I can make a decent record! So, I switched over to rock and roll so I could make music. And quite frankly, I'm making music to make money and meet women. I don't have any other agenda than that. I like to see my records in the stores when I go. That's like my one bit of ego boost. It doesn't have to be a huge window display. I just want to see it in the bin. It could be a store in like Lawrence, Kansas or Oslo or something. If I see my record in the bin, I'm happy! I did something. The record's going to be around forever. I could have quit. There was a point in the first 10 or so years where I could have quit and gone back to IT and been totally happy. But now I'm in it for the long haul.
