Foo Fighters to McCain: “Stop Using Our Song”

Another band, this time the Foo Fighters, has issues with the McCain campaign using their song, “My Hero.”

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 folks over at the McCain camp are claiming they have full rights to use the song since they already paid licensing fees.


One response to “Foo Fighters to McCain: “Stop Using Our Song”

  1. This is being reported in the usual liberal slanted fashion. There is no mention in the article of the McCain campaign purchase of the use license required. That would call for “objectivity”. The liberal media has lost that aspect of reporting.

    Purchase of a use license from ASCAP BMI and SESAC grants immediate and unlimited access to their vast repertory, including music used in broadcast commercials and jingles.
    So, if the Foo Fighters’ political based complaint about McCain’s use of their song is so important to them then they can remedy that by making all of their songs unavailable for use by ANYONE.

    If I were the McCain campaign I would announce that the Foo Fighters politically objected to the use of ‘My Hero’, pull it from use and go on. McCain backers will form their opinions about the Foo Fighters from this development, but the Foo Fighters and the Media have already caused that to happen.
