I'm trying to figure this out as well. It sounds like this band called 'Godspeed You Black Emperor', but I'm not sure. The last album of their's that I listened to was 70 minutes long and had 3 tracks, so I'll have to listen all the way thru to find the riff. Anyway, great song, would never make me buy anything, but nice to hear.
yah, someone mentioned the same commercial below (the one i just saw) and it sounds just about the same. it was for the 2004 Grand Prix. someone said that it was GM's ad agency Chemistri's original composition. sucks eh?
The song is by the band TIMONIUM from their album 'until he finds us' on the label PEHR. you can buy it online ar pehrlabel.com. that song is great. -marc > anyone know the sobg playing while the blind women is driving the pontiac in the open dryland ? its a cool gutiar riff, and im not sure if it is a real song or made by GM
