Commercialized Songs

Using music in popular media (TV shows, commercials, movies, video games, etc.) is a great way to promote a band. It "commercializes" them, letting mainstream audiences hear them and potentially buy their CDs. ^^

Below is a list of Do As Infinity's commercially used songs. This list might get bigger in the future, so stay tuned!
