mainstream media digests the fringe

So we've reached that point in human history where a Buzzcocks song ("Everybody's Happy Nowadays") is used for an AARP commercial.

This is the most significant development since an Iggy Pop song ("Lust for Life") was used for a cruise commercial.

There was once a time, many years ago, when the mere mention of Iggy Pop inspired trepidation in the bourgeoisie.

Given enough time, the mainstream media will always digest the fringe.
