Speaking with Songfacts in an interview, Iversen explained how the song got in the Apple commercial: "We have this company working for us in the States called Synch, and they got in touch with Apple. I think they had this meeting with Steve Jobs himself, and he picked that song out of the bunch and said, 'This is it, this is the new track for the iPod Touch.' Apparently he just loved that track, but we never saw it as one of our singles. We have some other songs that we thought would be great singles, and that would work cool on for the radio, but he really loved that song."
The Asteroids reached instant global exposure when their song Around The Bend was featured in an Apple iPod Touch advert in late 2008. Their music also appeared in US hit TV series Gossip Girl, CSI Miami as well as Chuck.
Around The Bend was also chosen as one of the key tracks to the R.J. Cuttler documentary "The September Issue", based on Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
Their song The Golden Age is featured in the latest Heineken advert The Entrance from 2011.
Their first show ever was as opening act for Amy Winehouse in their local Copenhagen and Katy Perry chose The Asteroids as opener for her European tour summer of 2009.
The band spend most of 2009 touring all around Europe and the US with their six piece live band which includes trumpet, saxophone, drums, guitar, keys, bass and more...
The press says:
Addictive quirky soulful Pop Music with attitude,
sweeping musical arrangements with one of the hippest vocals around, Known for their infectious live shows, shiny, shimmering, upbeat pop, albeit with a horn-infused, slightly psychadelic edge, C-walking, up rockin’ leg-splitting and hip-shaking their way through, infusion sound like no other,
effervescent music that reminds you of a dozen glorious summerskaleidoscopic monster, bubbly and hypnotic...
At the moment they are busy recording new material for future releases and getting ready for playing their "FRUIT" spring/summer tour around the world for festivals and club shows.

- LyricsI wished I lived in the golden age
Giving it up on the Broadway stage
Hang with the rats and smoke cigars
Have a break with Frank and count the stars
Dressed to the nines, with hair to match
- LyricsOoh, ooh, yeah!
Ooh, ooh, yeah!
Muck around, waist another mile now
Muck around, waist another mile now
You feel the need, there is no way to return
- LyricsWell, I got my mind out of sight
Lost the common sense,
Got a rave in my brain
Like I'm without defense.
Till I catch my eyes right in front of me,
- LyricsSomebody joined
When lady Jesus come to town
She made the calls, she made it fall
In a "gruesome vibe" never seen before
- LyricsAnyway you're OK, I'm away to the day when you wont pray for a better day.
Never say stay wide awake, be always late, for devils sake smile when you're afraid
In the gray, be a slave, everyday, create a wave, create your own fate
But you will fail, ...(the only line I cannot get)... lack the will, you'll be chasing your tail.
