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.
