‘The Chain’ rocks Super Bowl GOTG2 trailer

One of the best ads during Sunday’s Super Bowl LI was — of course — the new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer, featuring Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.” The clip starts off with John McVie’s signature bassline riff (apparently remixed to sound future-y) and escalates to Stevie, Lindsey, and Christine’s blood-curdling cries of “Chain…keep us together!” It could be just the rush of hearing The Mac’s rock anthem “The Chain” represent the plight of Marvel Comics superheroes protecting and defending the universe, but it still sends chills up the spine. Not bad for a 40-year-old song.

In case you missed it (because you couldn’t care less about football), here’s the clip of the trailer.
