Peter Gabriel Pulls Music From 'Rush Limbaugh Show'

By Rolling Stone
March 5, 2012 2:25 PM ET
Peter Gabriel has demanded that his music be pulled from Rush Limbaugh's radio show after learning that his 1986 hit "Sledgehammer" was played while the host launched into a tirade against Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke on Wednesday.

"Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh's extraordinary attack on Sandra Fluke," says a statement on Gabriel's Facebook page. "It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter's work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair aggressive and ignorant comments."

Limbaugh has come under fire for calling Fluke, who testified at a Congressional hearing on contraception, a "slut" and a "prostitute." The program has lost eight sponsors in the wake of Limbaugh's attack.

I hope his listeners like Ted Nugent. Lots and lots of Nugent.
