Tom Petty vs. Michele Bachmann
Petty sent Bachmann a cease-and-desist order after the Minnesota congresswoman used his song “American Girl” when announcing her candidacy for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Bachmann complied, but not before accidentally playing a 29-second clip of the song at an event the following day. —Jeff Royer
