Palin's Music Problems

Fri Sep 05, 2008 10:24 pm

Now I was not browsing, I originally heard this on NPR. When I typed in “Heart Palin” in the Google, I got this as the top result.,2933,417621,00.html

Quoting Faux sNews:
"I think it's completely unfair to be so misrepresented," Heart's Nancy Wilson told after the speech. "I feel completely f---ed over." She and sister Ann Wilson then e-mailed the following statement to EW:

"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."

Last week, right before McCain introduced Palin in Dayton, Ohio, he played the song "Right Now” by Van Halen. A few hours later, Van Halen’s publicist told MTV News that the hopeful was never granted permission to use the track, and had permission been sought, it would never have been granted.

Anything to take the focus off John McCain's issues her lack of experience is a good thing for the GOP ticket.
