Having said that...
Ann and Nancy Wilson are pissed at the Republican Party and have fired off a cease and desist letter to the McCain/Palin campaign.
Specifically, the Heart women are upset that the GOP has used their classic "Barracuda" as a theme song for Sarah Palin. TMZ obtained a statement from Heart's rep, who says "The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted that permission."
Cry me a freakin' river. You've just INSURED that whenever your 30 year old song is played, people will now think "Sarah Palin".
So what will you do now, follow the McCain/Palin campaign with a lawyer and threaten a lawsuit every time they play it?
Screw you. And if you manage to take this video down (which I did not do), I have all of your songs loaded and ready to make videos...every time doing something to glorify the Republicans:
Update: Barracuda co-writers: Quit your whining!
Listen here...at the last 5 minutes of the first hour and the first 10 minutes of the second hour:
I was talking about Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart being outraged that the McCain campaign was using their song "Barricuda" at the GOP convention. They chose that song because "barracuda" was Sarah Palin's nickname in high school.
As I was discussing that story, two original members of Heart - both of whom shared songwriting credits on Barricuda - called in to say they had no problem with the McCain campign's use of the song. I heard from drummer Mike DeRosier and guitarist Roger Fisher.
