2. Republicans have a long history of rebuffs from the music industry
Reagan tried to use "Born in the USA" (obviously never listened to it) and Bruce made them stop
Reagan tried to use "Little Pink Houses" (obviously....) John made them stop

Dole tried to use "I'm a Dole Man" the owners of the Sam and Dave song made him stop

Palin tried to use "Barracuda" Heart (the Wilson sisters-Cameron Crowe's wife) made her stop

Palin tried to use a Van Halen song - forgot the song- Van Halen (apolitical) made them stop

McCain tried to use (no kidding) "Running on Empty" (SERIOUSLY?!?!??!) Jackson Browne was aggressive in stopping them. Counter suing as I recall.
