Enrique Iglesias’ ‘Hero’ Cannot Be Anthem After Commercial Sellout

David Hinckley of the New York Daily News looked at how songs that might be considered important have been eliminated from that distinction because the artist sells themselves out to use the tunes to sell a product. Included on the list was ’ ‘Hero’, as Hinckley wrote, “Responding to a column here about Sept. 11 songs, a reader calling himself Char Rao says that after the WTC attack, he was betting that the pop song we would adopt as our national musical statement would be ’ ‘Hero.’ Then he woke up one day to see that Chrysler had beaten us to it, renting ‘Hero’ for the TV ad where a Jeep Liberty drives up the side of the Empire State Building.”
