I heard it the other night. Looks like they may get involved with NASCAR.

I've heard it a few times.  I'm thinking cause they show Dale Earnhardt the song kind of fits.  It's still weird to equate U2 and NASCAR together.

AHHH!!! stuff like this just makes me mad...even if U2 had nothing to do with it, it just drives another stake into their public support.  all people will think about is, oh u2's selling out...'again'.   >:( >:( >:(

I think it's okay, the song's music actually fits well with the commerical, so I approve, since I love Nascar and U2  :)

I heard about it on Twitter over the weekend.  Are you guys upset about it?  I mean other than the meaning is way off and it seems odd are you upset to hear Bad?  Should U2 not be used in commercials?
For me I just love hearing U2 any where.  I am often surprised we don't hear them way more in commercials given the emotional level they can achieve in a song.
I said on my twitter feed that U2 equals emotion and sports are based on emotion so it seems a natural fit to me. 

I hear U2 all the time at the Oilers games and I always love it! 
I think U2 songs should be used on soundtracks more too...When I see a movie I often wish I could pick the soundtracks to them...there would be a lot of U2!
