Target Commercial Song - Music and Artist from Latest Commercial

Have you seen the latest Target commercial on TV? The 2-day sale commercial looks like a Flash-based video game (it is), and features a soundtrack from what sounds like a girls cheerleading team. You can take a look at it here:

The song is by without a doubt my favorite new band to emerge over the past several years - The Go! Team. The song is called "We Just Won't Be Defeated" and is off their 2004 debut album "Thunder, Lightning, Strike". I don't believe there is an official video for the song, but you can enjoy this live concert version:



The Go! Team are an English, Brighton-based six piece band (with two drummers) whose songs are a mixture of action theme songs, cheerleader chants, guitars and early hip hop, with a hint of '70s funk. They are awesome.

The Go! Team more than deserve their own post, so I'll compose a more detailed writeup later. For now, enjoy a Target commercial actually worth watching instead of skipping through. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Get the CD: Thunder, Lightning, Strike

Thanks Larry,
I've been wondering what this song was- it's catchy. I doubt it will get me into Target on Friday a.m, but I'm glad to know about this band. Happy Thanksgiving!
