Miller Lite Punch Top Can 2012 Commercial – What’s the Song?
It’s the 4th of July, otherwise known as America’s biggest beer-drinking day of the year — so it’s fitting that today we’re looking at the song you hear in the background of Miller Lite’s commercials for its new punch top can.
The track, ‘How You Like Me Now?’ by British neo-soul/rock band the Heavy, is one you’ve actually probably heard before — it’s been used in a number of films and TV shows, including ‘Horrible Bosses,’ ‘The Change-Up,’ ‘Limitless,’ ‘Community’ and ‘Entourage.’
And it’s easy to understand why it’s such a favorite for music directors: Its swaggering arrangement, hummable horn riff, and fun-to-shout refrain make it a natural for scenes depicting characters pulling a fast one, overcoming adversity, or realizing they can get an allegedly smoother pour out of their cold can of Miller Lite.
The Heavy’s next album, ‘The Glorious Dead,’ is scheduled for release in August, but ‘How You Like Me Now?’ comes from their previous effort, 2009’s ‘The House That Dirt Built.’ Here’s hoping the new record contains something just as catchy (and commercial-ready).
