Here’s an article by John Densmore of The Doors from 2002 about why they don’t allow their music in commercials.

What I’m wondering about is if this is really much better. Not the fact that Snoop is covering it but that it’s appearing in the game at all. I had similar feelings when I played the new Tony Hawk game and heard Break On Through. Now I'm not offended quite as much as if I'd heard it in a Chevy commercial, but it still feels like a cheapening of the work. If video game development had grown into the kind of art form I'd like to see it I wouldn’t have as big a problem, just like I don’t have issues with my favorite tunes being used in films. But the gaming industry seems so dead set on turning out crap that I have trouble believing they were really inspired to choose the songs by their love of the music. I fail to see how allowing any corporate, profit motivated, use of the music can be justified if what your really worried about is the integrity of the music in the eyes of the fans.

As far as Snoop covering it, if it was just on an album I really wouldn’t care, good covers happen as often as bad even amongst “Rap” (read: pop) artists, not that I expect this to be good one (actually I cant think of an example of a good example of a quality "Rap" or Hip-hop cover but theres alot of good hip-hop out there that sample good rock songs and does it in a way that creates somthing original). It’s just that this smells of something turned out of a marketing department.
