I grew up listening to Heart, the fantastic rock group headed up by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. Well, I’m disappointed in them. They’re demanding the Republicans stop playing their song “Barracuda” as Sarah Palin’s theme song:
Ann and Nancy Wilson are pissed at the Republican Party and have fired off a cease and desist letter to the McCain/Palin campaign.
Specifically, the Heart women are upset that the GOP has used their classic “Barracuda” as a theme song for Sarah Palin. TMZ obtained a statement from Heart’s rep, who says “The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted that permission.”
Not only is this disappointing, it’s also quite stupid. I hope they’re not behaving this way because of politics. The Dixie Chicks made that mistake, which essentially torpedoed the success they had. Sarah Palin is a strong, intelligent woman, not to mention very well liked, and having their song played as a theme song of sorts for her would probably result in a reawakening of Heart’s music, and that hasn’t happened in quite a while.
