I <3 Heart

From the Jezebel blog:

The sister act behind "Barracuda," the song used by the McCain-Palin campaign in reference to Sarah Palin's "Barracuda" nickname, is none too pleased that their pro-woman anthem is being co-opted by the GOP. Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart sent a cease and desist letter to the McCain campaign, and, in reaction to last night's use of it, Nancy sent an angry letter to Entertainment Weekly, tearing Sarah Barracuda a new one. "I feel completely fucked over," she said. "Sarah Palin's views and values in NO WAY represent us as American women. We ask that our song 'Barracuda' no longer be used to promote her image. The song 'Barracuda' was written in the late 70s as a scathing rant against the soulless, corporate nature of the music business, particularly for women. (The 'barracuda' represented the business.) While Heart did not and would not authorize the use of their song at the RNC, there's irony in Republican strategists' choice to make use of it there."

    "And if the real thing don't do the trick, you better make up something quick."

    Very accurate with this Palin VP pick. It's a gimmick that they made up at the last second.

    Usually, organizations have to pay ASCAP or BMI in order to play a song to a croud (public performance). I'd love to hear if the RNC was bound by those rules which would mean that Heart put their song up for sale and got paid for the use by the Republicans. That would be rich.
