Joining the ranks of bands who refuse to lose face on account of the Republican party are the Foo Fighters! They, like Heart, have submitted a public statement requesting that the G.O.P. discontinue the use of their song, “My Hero,” without permission.
“This isn’t the first time the McCain campaign has used a song without making any attempt to get approval or permission from the artist…. To have it appropriated without our knowledge and used in a manner that perverts the original sentiment of the lyric just tarnishes the song… It makes us ashamed to be us, because it seems like we wanna hang tight with that disoriented gook-hater and his caribou Queen. And listen, we’ve never been ashamed to be us. Would you be?
By the way, has John McCain ever reminded you of Herman Munster?*”
