Christian Thieves: McCain - Jezebel Palin

Whited Sepulchers

GOP ignores copyrights, raises ire of multiple recording artists.

GOP COPYRIGHT CRIMINALS

Van Halen, Heart, Others to GOP: Stop Using Our Songs!

Posted by Dave Burdick




This campaign season, Republicans have been using a lot of songs from artists who wouldn't have given permission if asked, and some who have spoken up to ask that their songs not be used in the future.



Here's the No-Thanks-GOP playlist so far:



Van Halen - Right Now



Van Halen management tells us the band had no idea McCain was planning on using "Right Now" during his big entrance in Ohio telling us, "Permission was not sought or granted nor would it have been given."


Jackson Browne - Running on Empty



If the whole episode strikes a nostalgic tone, it's because famous musical artists and Republican presidential candidates have butted heads in the past. Bruce Springsteen publicly complained when Ronald Reagan used "Born in the U.S.A" during his campaign in 1984.


Heart - Barracuda



...the Wilsons condemned the usage, adding that Universal Music Publishing and Sony BMG have sent a cease-and-desist notice to the McCain-Palin campaign, according to CNN. "We have asked the Republican campaign publicly not to use our music,'' the group said in a statement.


Orleans - Still the One



Proving that campaign vetting should extend beyond vice presidential contenders (or those vetting the potential veeps), McCain sparked the ire of the song's co-writer, the founding member of Orleans and current New York congressman, John Hall.


Frankie Valli - Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You



Warner Music Group (WMG) appears to have demanded that YouTube remove "Obama Love," a montage of press fawning over Sen. Barack Obama that had been posted on Sen. John McCain's official YouTube channel. "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner Music Group," says a message on YouTube.
