The Cult: She Sells Sanctuary featured in Super Bowl ad

A classic from The Cult will be featured in a Super Bowl commercial this weekend.

A new ad for Budweiser features a mashup of The Cult’s “She Sells Sanctuary” with rapper Flo Rida's Top 10 hit “Good Feelin'”.

The one-minute ad is a celebratory romp through several decades of great times in America that begins with the end of Prohibition in 1933.

Written by The Cult's vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, “She Sells Sanctuary” reached No. 15 on the U.K. chart and was a Top 40 dance hit in the U.S. In a review, one journalist wrote, "Duffy's liquid, quasi-psychedelic guitar intro over a buzz of flanged feedback suddenly rips into a triumphant, driving lead melody that's jaw-dropping."

The Cult have announced their new album, “Choice Of Weapon,” will be released May 22.

The first track from the disc, “Lucifer,” was posted earlier this week – check out more details here.
