Archival TV commercial with Paul Revere & Raiders

With a tip of the hat to the folks at BoingBoing, I stumbled upon an old TV commercial featuring Paul Revere & Raiders and the Raiders at the Bedazzled website.

Which leads me to ask once again….. why the heck aren’t these guys in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame yet? They had a ton of great rock songs, they sold lots of vinyl for Columbia Records, and even had a rockin’ TV show long before MTV even existed. While we’re at it, let’s rip open the doors of this place to get Richard Berry, the Kingsmen, the Wailers, the Sonics, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, MC5, Iggy Pop & the Stooges, Davie Allan & the Arrows, Cheap Trick, and the friggin’ Monkees into this place! How did so many schocky 70’s bands ever get in there, anyways?

Anyways, go check out this rockin’ Paul Revere & the Raiders clip, and then go buy one of them cool Pontiac GTO automobiles……
