Ah-ha! An article on Lou Reed in today's NY Newsday reveals who to blame for appearance of the Velvet Underground's "Heroin" in a damn Nissan commercial: "He also sold part of 'Heroin,' Reed's first-person, love-and-hate account of late-'60s drug abuse, to Nissan for a television commercial. 'It's not the song, it's two chords,' Reed says. 'You really think it's funny when something's banned for so long and they want two chords for whatever.'" I love Lou Reed, but clearly he's a complete jackass.
