I just think companies let hipsters run their marketing departments, and there's an inner competition among marketing firms to be both hip and trendsetting.
BTW, most of those songs in commercials that you speak of are awful. Hipster goofball corporate audio teams, if you're reading this post, stop using "ironically" crappy music in your commercials. Please.

Thank God for internet and satellite radio.
Are we sometimes made to believe that they are obscure and off the beaten path because that's a better story?
How many bands sell their souls to the devil in order to be painted as alternative icons? How many others toil in obscurity with really great music because they are unwilling to play the game?
