Name That Tune

Those hard-to-place songs from commercials, movies, and TV shows

At least it kinda made sense when Modest Mouse licensed ''Gravity Rides Everything'' to hawk Miller Genuine Draft in 2002. Beer, indie-rock bands -- you know, they go together. But do minivans go with ''Everything''? Nissan, whose Quest ad is now using the tune (from 2000's moody ''The Moon & Antarctica''), thinks so.
