FOX NEWS AND LOSING MY RELIGION. R.E.M

FOX NEWS AND LOSING MY RELIGION

R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion" was used in the Fox News coverage of the Democratic National Convention last night. R.E.M. today, through its music publisher, Warner-Tamerlane Music, demanded that Fox News cease and desist from continuing its unlicensed and unauthorized use of the song.

Michael Stipe said, "We have little or no respect for their puff adder brand of reportage. Our music does not belong there."

1. Well, darn

I guess now Stipe is just going to have to reunite the band and campaign against Willard

Also, this may have to happen somewhere within a decent drive of me, preferably on a weekend.

2. Unearned privileges of all kinds are the Right Wings' prerogative.

Just who does this Michael Stipe think he is?

11. Yep me too

Stipe was another instrument in the band (the little band that could) and his lyrics changed depending on your mood.

Truly a one of a kind band.

6. This was no Reagan/Born In The USA misunderstanding

It was a dog whistle designed to tell their viewers "Democrats hate the baby Jesus".

14. They couldn't find anything suitiable from Nugent or Williams

So they stole R.E.M.'s music. How nice.
