"The Greatest Taste Around" is the second and last single by Negativland from the 1997 popular release Dispepsi. It is a satire on Pepsi's promotion campaigns for Crystal Pepsi and Coca-Cola's failed campaign for New Coke, using such lyrics as "I nailed Jesus to the cross" (a reference to the song "Christianity Is Stupid") and "Children dying of disease" (a reference to "Happy Hero"). A video was made for the song in the late '90s, using many Pepsi commercials and incorporating other films, including the Pepsi conference that was sampled in the song and Max Headroom's famous commercials for Coke. The video wasn't played that much on MTV due to Seeland not having a large enough distributor other than Caroline, then owned by EMI.
