"This is not a political issue -- this is a copyright issue,"Kentucky senatorial candidate Rand Paul was denied from using "Tom Sawyer" in a campaign video.
Almost two years ago, John McCain was also told by the Foo Fighters to stop using their music.
Obama has also been called out for using a certain song, but it seems to me that those farther to the right aren't liked much by the rock community. Perhaps it is a copyright issue rather than a political stance. Either way I like it.
