Quantum of Solace (2008) - "Coke Zero Trailer"

Rock's resident loudmouth Noel Gallagher has taken a pot shot at Jack White for writing the new Bond theme tune. The Oasis guitarist laid into The White Stripes singer for being chosen to create the theme tune for "Quantum Of Solace" and claimed that he had produced his own version. "It's a pisstake that the greatest British agent of all time has to be soundtracked by a bunch of f****** Americans," he told NME. "I've written a couple of theme tunes. They haven't got very Bond-esque titles, so I would have to tailor the title accordingly." "The latest one that I wrote, I listened back to it thinking, '"F****** hell, man! That'd make a f****** great Bond theme.' Last week, an instrumental version of "Another Way To Die", which White produced and recorded with Alicia Keys, was premiered on an advert for Coke Zero. White reportedly blasted the use of the song on the commercial saying he had been commissioned by the film company to write a song for "Quantum Of Solace" and "not for Coca Cola". "Any other use of the song is based on decisions made by others, not by Jack White," his management said in a statement. "We are disappointed that you first heard the song in a co-promotion for Coke Zero, rather than in its entirety."
