    Sen. John McCain's use of the Heart song "Barracuda" after his acceptance speech Thursday night is causing heartburn with the Seattle-based rock group.

    Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson posted a message today on their Web site condemning the use of their 1977 hit at the Republican convention. The song was played when McCain, the party's presidential nominee, was joined onstage after the speech by his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

    The sisters said their representatives, Universal Music Publishing and SONY BMG, have sent a cease-and-desist notice to the McCain-Palin campaign to not use the song as the congratulatory theme for Palin.

    The idiots did that with Springsteen's BITUSA, also. They really should learn to ask first so they don't get embarrassed.

    BTW, one should also question the gravitas of a presidential Candidate who thinks Barracuda is an appropriate song with which to represent themselves and their campaign, not to mention the sexism in applying that to thw woman VP candidate.

    Tells you what she was picked for, though.

    Let me think, " Heart" Heart" oh yes the Wilson sisters from back in the 70's great band living off royalities for what? the last 30 years or so? Good marketing thing though if I were living off that sort of thing to get in the new's get my song played before millions , then tell them to stop playing it? great idea! I guess they didnt get their .99 cents from itunes are pissed now. Little point though, what if Sarah Palin went to her itunes account and d/l it? I guess that means she has to destroy her iPod too because she didnt somehow get blessed by them to put in on there either? Amazing, all they really had to do was put a big OLD " I VOTE FOR OBAMA tag voice over on the song and well no d/l there. *laughs* This stuff is makes me laugh.

    Hell, seems to me that the RNC should get fined for stealing music so blatantly for the sake of political gain....

    Actually, you dumb bastard, buying the music doesn't mean I can make money off of it by using it as an endorsement.


    AND, it's not like everyone in America forgot who the fuck HEART was until two days ago thanks to the RNC.


    you desperate pussies make me laugh.
