Death Grips Soundtrack Adidas Commercial

Death Grips broke up earlier this year shortly after releasing Niggas On The Moon, one half of a double album called The Powers That B. At the time of their breakup, the band said, “we are now at our best and so Death Grips is over. we have officially stopped.” Adidas have now released a commercial featuring a song from the notably anti-establishment group. A commercial for the company’s INTERSPORT shoe line is soundtracked by Government Plates track “You Might Think He Loves You For You Money But I Know What He Really Loves You For And It’s Your Brand New Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat.” Watch it below.

According to their breakup note, the second half of The Powers That B will be out later this year via Harvest/Third World Records.

  1. These sneakers really capture the struggle of our artistic endeavors, yo!

  2. You Might Think He Loves You For You Money But I Know What He Really Loves You For And It’s Your Brand New Fly Ass Sneakers Dawg. Noided.

  3. Death Grips shot a special interactive clip for MTV, anti-establishment my ass. This band has good songs, but is also a freakin joke, and it amazes me every day how many fans just jumped on their whole “experimental concept” as if they were the true artists when they have been mainly sell outs and douchebags (cancelled concerts every few months ? Fake concert with no band and a soundtrack ? pick one or other examples)

    • Interactive video for MTV. Can’t you see the irony? They made the corporation pay the only kind of music video that cannot be broadcasted by them. And MTV usually do not pay shit for the music videos they broadcast, actually they receive money to broadcast them.

  4. Full of shit.

  5. I’ve never been under the impression that Death Grips were going for an anti-consumerist/establishment edge. I think their entire career can be summed up as thus – they did whatever the hell they felt like doing, when they felt like doing it, with utter disregard as to how others felt about it. Yeah, they leaked their own album and burned bridges with their record label. They also had no problem letting that very same label release “The Money Store” and then “No Love Deep Web” on their own label. They’ve blown off an entire tour with NIN/Soundgarden but had no problem playing big summer festivals (until, ya know, they decided not to).

    I just think it’s hilarious that Death Grips are still pissing people off from beyond the grave.
