Heart vs. Sarah Palin
The band Heart had its record label issue a cease-and-desist notice to the McCain / Palin campaign after its song “Barracuda” was used as a theme song of sorts for Sarah Palin, who said she had been nicknamed "Sarah Barracuda" in high school due to her competitive streak. "The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song,” the band wrote in a statement, “nor would they have been granted that permission," the statement read. —Jeff Royer
