You Asked For It: Hollywood Heartthrob
When financial considerations mean songs needs to be replaced for a DVD release of a film or a TV show, producers usually turn to generic sounding music to take the place of the more popular, but prohibitively expensive, tune. Tinsel-town just might come knocking on Hollywood Heartthrob's door, if their debut release The Takeover, is any indicator. They'd make a great stand-in for that Rolling Stones track some movie exec can't negotiate rights to.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's not like we have never heard this stuff before. The Takeover isn't terrible, and it's clear that a lot of money was put into this self-produced release. But, then again, you can put a lot of money into almost anything, and if the substance just isn't there, no one is to blame but the creative minds behind it.
