Renegades ~ by X Ambassadors ~ Jeep Commercial

Yet again, my music taste is expanded by music used in a commercial. As Apple did for Feist's "1,2,3,4", Jeep does for the X Ambassadors' "Renegades." I simply can't get the melody out of my head, nor the message out of my soul. We all need to be Renegades at some...
