    Foo Fighters want McCain to stop using song
    Republican nominee has been playing ‘My Hero’ at his rallies

    The Foo Fighters would like the McCain campaign to stop using the band's song, "My Hero" at Republican rallies.


    Senator John McCain may be an American hero — but the Foo Fighters still don’t want him using “My Hero” at his campaign rallies.

    The rock band is the latest act to ask the McCain-Palin campaign to stop using its music. Heart, Van Halen, John Mellencamp and Jackson Browne have also asked for the campaign to turn off their tunes, according to ABC News.

    “This isn’t the first time the McCain campaign has used a song without making any attempt to get approval or permission from the artist,” the Foo Fighters said in a statement. “It’s frustrating and infuriating that someone who claims to speak for the American people would repeatedly show such little respect for creativity and intellectual property. The saddest thing about this is that ‘My Hero’ was written as a celebration of the common man and his extraordinary potential. To have it appropriated without our knowledge and used in a manner that perverts the original sentiment of the lyric just tarnishes the song.”

    “My Hero” is a track from the Foo Fighters’ 1997 album, “The Colour and the Shape.”

    “We hope that the McCain campaign will do the right thing and stop using our song,” the band added, “and start asking artists’ permission in general!”

    I say sue the McCain campaign. The only way they'll listen is if you ask them to pay up.

    I think all the artists who don't like their music used without their permission should sue, no matter which campaign it is. Using their music without permission implies an endorsement to an extent these days.

    The only time I liked Bryan Adams was when he told that racist creep ex KKK member (Duke?) to stop using "Everything I do I do it for you" in his rallies.

    There is the Red Hot Chili Peppers song 'My Friends,' and the lyrics are oddly appropriate.

    Well it seems several artists have issues with McOld using their songs.

    There's a song My Friends by Red Hot Chili Peppers, but its a song about being a drug burnout.

    My friends are so depressed
    I feel the question
    Of your loneliness
    Confide... `cause Ill be on your side
    You know I will, you know I will

    X girlfriend called me up
    Alone and desperate
    On the prison phone
    They want... to give her 7 years
    For being sad

    Chorus :
    I love all of you
    Hurt by the cold
    So hard and lonely too
    When you dont know yourself

    My friends are so distressed
    And standing on
    The brink of emptiness
    No words... I know of to express
    This emptiness

    Chorus :
    Imagine me taught by tragedy
    Release is peace
    I heard a little girl
    And what she said
    Was something beautiful
    To give... your love
    No matter what


    Red Hot Chili Peppers | My Friends lyrics
