VIDEO: Steve Miller Band classic featured in Taco Bell commercial

A new version of the Steve Miller Band’s 1976 classic, “Take The Money And Run”, is featured in a new commercial for Taco Bell.

The soundtrack to the ad was recorded by synth-rock duo Priory as part of the fast food company’s marketing campaign for the Crunchwrap Slider.

“Take The Money And Run” was originally released as the lead single from Miller’s 9th album, “Fly Like An Eagle.”

The tune peaked at No. 11 on the US Billboard Hot 100 single chart, while the album reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 on its way to selling more than 4 million copies in the States alone.
