The Heavy vs. Newt Gingrich
The Gingrich campaign felt the full weight of British band The Heavy after being hit with a cease-and-desist letter. The order follows the unauthorized use of the band’s song “How You Like Me Now?” – most recognizable from its use in a series of Kia ads – during Gingrich campaign stops. In addition to contacting the Gingrich camp directly, the band fired off a message on its Facebook page, stating, “If you heard ‘How You Like Me Now’ being used by Republican Newt Gingrich in his campaign, we’d like you to know it had [nothing] to do with us and we are trying to stop it being used.”—Jeff Royer
