Rush Pulls Music from Limbaugh Show [View all]

Rush Pulls Music from Limbaugh Show

Posted on 03/06/2012 at 6:44 pm by Bob Cesca

Yesterday, I contacted Anthem Entertainment and Rush (the band) about Rush Limbaugh’s airing of their music on his show, and today I was exclusively informed that the legendary Canadian rock group has officially demanded that the Rush Limbaugh Program stop using its music on the air.

For years now, Rush Limbaugh has been playing Rush music (get it?) as bumpers out of his commercial breaks, including the tracks “Bravado” and “The Spirit of Radio”. In fact, when Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke and remarked about seeing sex tapes of Fluke in exchange for birth control pills, Limbaugh was playing the popular Rush track “The Spirit of Radio” under his rant.

Thankfully, that ends today.

Here’s the official cease & desist letter from Bob Farmer, the head legal affairs for S.R.O. Management Inc., Core Music Publishing and The Anthem Entertainment Group Inc.
