When you hear the Cheers theme, what bar or restaurant do you think of?

This is a rhetorical poll. Stop playing that song, Applebee's. FAIL

2. I never think of Applebees, at least as an option for food. Never.

3. I am the second Pass. Let me explain my vote.

I am OVER companies hijacking and ruining iconic songs to shill their own crap.

“What a Wonderful World” is right up there with “Everybody Knows Your Name.” Just stop it. “Wonderful World” is now being used to sell cruises, in addition to investments and shady animal welfare groups. Enough. Neither song is in the public domain yet, and I wish their owners would show a bit more discretion.

While both grind my gears, the Applebee’s spots go on for far too long. Jeebus…bring back “Fancy Like,” which they nearly beat to death late last year and was universally hated. I think the goal of advertising anymore is to make the product annoying AF.

4. They could actually hire a singer/songwriter to write a new jingle

That would cost less than licensing a popular song and they'd be putting money into a beleaguered music scene. And people would think solely of their brand when they hear it. Sure, there's a chance that the song would be a flop. Such is life, it is better to take a shot and not be a bunch of corporate chicken shits.

5. I'm actually beginning to hate hearing "Wonderful World."

And that is just a shame. Just waiting for Charmin to use it next.

The “Cheers” theme just pisses me off. Eating crap food at a crap restaurant chain is not what the song is about. But if the copyright owners sell out…

7. In the days when I frequented bars I tried to go where no one knew my name.
