Ok, someone help me out...I lost track how many times this song "Fight Song" has already been used in TV ads.  I do recall it used locally in a Breast Cancer walk back in May, also in a local commercial for a Children's Hospital. It was in national ad that has aired since...well, seems like forever. I just forget what the ad was. Obviously it was pretty unforgettable *sarcasm* Dead

Basically I feel like I've heard this tune for well over a year and now I am really hearing it on Sirius, the performer is making a slew of appearances. 

Anyway, here's the new Ford Explorer - once again, with my newest pet peeve in the latest ads, the "soothing narrator."

And the use of this already over used tune.

So true. Unlike a lot of modern pop stars, she actually has a lot of vocal talent...then chooses to waste it on crap like this. Oh well, I guess it keeps giant piles of cash coming her way, suppose I can't blame her for it, but still.

I heard "Fight Song" on the radio at least twice, and then lo and behold I'm at AC Moore and guess what I hear on the PA system? "A small boat on the ocean... Making big waves...like an explosion...this is my FIGHT SONG TAKE BACK MY LIFE SONG ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Make it STOP!!!! I miss the days when stores played 1970s and 1980s music!

That song totally sucks. Driving to work, which takes around 20 minutes, I hear it 3 times on 3 different channels. Of course I change the channel immediately. Driving back after work, chalk up 2 more times. This is a song that should never have been recorded. The artist is Rachel whatever and her and Katy what's her face should never be allowed to set foot anywhere near a mic again.
SO I GO ON VEHIX.COM!....GOT A CAR TO SELL!....BUYING A CAR IS HARD!

I'm getting tired of the "Fight song," too. Cute the first few times, annoying after that.

ugh, i first heard this song on the radio for about a week, then asap Rachel Platten cashed in and sold out to anyone who wanted to use her liberating song to push goods. now when i hear it on the radio, i think of Ford, or Super Girl tv show promo ads, etc.
I am part of the target audience....and I hate it.

She just did a song called "Invincible" that sounds a bit like it. All this crap is cut from the same cloth.

They STILL use this song, just saw it during a break in the football game.

It's an odd choice for a stupid car. Really didn't pay attention until now, but I hear "this is my fight song, take back my life song..."

I've said it before, I associate it with commercials that were used for women battling breast cancer, or a tune for feeling empowered getting over a sexual assault. NO idea what this song has to do with owning a damn Ford.

Maybe I'm just becoming bitter in my old age...but these simple minded, "empowerment" tunes sung by bubble gum pop stars are getting old. I mean, what do most of these girls know about adversity or life's roadblocks??? That goes for the cute little fan base as well.
