Foo Fighters tell McCain to stop using song

Recommended Posts

Yet another band is complaining about John McCain's use of their song to promote his campaign. This time, it's the Foo Fighters.

 

"The saddest thing about this is that `My Hero' was written as a celebration of the common man and his extraordinary potential," the band said in a statement. "To have it appropriated without our knowledge and used in a manner that perverts the original sentiment of the lyric just tarnishes the song."

 

The band noted it's not the first time McCain has been told to stop using a song. John Mellencamp, Heart and Jackson Browne have also complained — Browne even filed a lawsuit.
