I noticed the resemblance to Pat Benatar too when I looked at the video. Mind you, Justin Bieber sometimes looks like Darby Crash to me.

i'm thinking that westwood promotions put this out via warner/time-life or warner special products, but discogs' warner special products entry doesn't mention it.

Yeah, you can see the Warner "W" logo on the cds in the commercial. It's become my mission to find a real world copy of this fucker.

^ saw that, but then decided it was maybe just a warner-like westwood logo, dunno

I don't know, that is way more 90s than PUNK is punk

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Friday, 4 May 2012 14:33 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah but it's like three or four no-brainers buffering a whole lot of pretty counterintuitive picks

some dude, Friday, 4 May 2012 14:38 (five years ago) Permalink

that's three or four more than the PUNK compilation has!

I guess the idea of hardening your heart is a punk sentiment, but I'm not sure it's worth a distant finish behind bands with clear new wave affiliations.

at a guess, Quarterflash may have lost votes by being the only one on this list to be completely unknown in Europe?

that 90s comp looks like it came free with 10 purchases of a soft drink in early 1994, so I guess it is pretty 90s

three years pass...

Sorry for bumping such an old post, but, I have been searching for this for at least 5-6 years. I think I finally solved the mystery last night. Rather than bore you with all the details, I'll just refer you to the Reddit post where I explain the full story: https://www.reddit.com/r/Music/comments/3o3ens/minor_mystery_solved_90s_punk_cd_commercial/

The bolded titles are the songs not in the commercial (10), the other 26 match up with the known track listing featured in the commercial.
