This isn’t the first time that John McCain’s camp have used campaign songs that were unauthorized by the makers. Heart didn’t want the McCain campaign using “Barracuda” and the Foo Fighters sure don’t want him using their hit, “My Hero”, either.
The AP reports that the Foo Fighters have requested that McCain stop using their song.
