This may have already been answered elsewhere, but can anyone tell me the name of the artist/group and title of the music that was used in the original PowerMacintosh G5 Promo that Apple used in it?

I know that the Switcher Ads used a track by John Murphy called "Spit" but I'd love to know what they used for the above.

Please post a reply to [email protected] and to this forum if you wish. Thanks!

I believe Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice" was used in the early part of the video. I can't find it anymore on apple.com.

They used two Fatboy Slim tracks: "Weapon of Choice" (from "Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars") and "Right Here, Right Now" (from "You've Come A Long Way, Baby").

I'm not familiar with Fatboy Slim's work at all, but I can check on the various P2P sites and see if I can find it...

Thanks again!

He's a British DJ, aka Norman Cook (not so catchy ).
