Which songs do you believe have been done to undeath in commercials, either in their original form, as parodies, or as introduced in commercials?

Also Sprach Zarathustra (the theme from 2001)
Ride of the Valkyries (the helicopter attack scene from Apocalypse Now)
Total Eclipse of the Heart (seems to have been a bandwagon since GEICO used it)
I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas) This was EVERYWHERE for a while a few years ago, I think about '09-'10, thankfully its popularity has died off a bit.
In the Hall of the Mountain King Another one that seems to have died off a bit, but is a common go-to because of its distinctive frantic pace.
Kickstart My Heart A good song, but it's just been done too many times. Once Dodge picked it up, it was never the same.

Led Zeppelin's "Rock n Roll" though it hasn't been featured in recent commercials that I recall.

That "How you like me NOW!?" crap song by whoever.

Oh how could I forget that one.  Censored Walmart and their Black Friday bullsh*t.

Lust for Life by Iggy Pop
I Love It by Icona Pop

20th Century Boy by T. Rex has been used in an inordinate number of commercials made in the 21st century and having to do with 21st century products---the 2001 and 2005 Mitsubishis and currently, Verizon.  What gives?

But Thor...it's the misuse of 20th Century Boy that is so amusing.  A brag song by an androgynous, heavily made-up glitter-glam elf (may he R.I.P.) is so wonderfully out of place in the Verizon ads - again, I ask:  did these adwipes actually listen to the lyrics?  Especially the second verse, not exactly appropriate for the kiddies!

Surreal moment:  just saw the ad, with a tag for - of all things - Father's Day.  Shocked
