    This is so un-punk rock that it's actually almost punk rock! According to the BBC, The Clash's "London Calling" is being used in commercials that are a countdown to the 2012 Summer Olympics, which are being held in London. The Olympics are probably using the song since it has the word "London" in the title and it is an iconic, recognizable song, even if it isn't exactly an uplifting jam that celebrates the city.

    What other songs should be used as part of Olympic advertising and commercials?
