David Byrne vs. Charlie Crist
David Byrne hit former Florida governor Charlie Crist with a million-dollar lawsuit for using the Talking Heads’ 1985 song “Road to Nowhere” without permission in an attack ad during his 2010 run for senator. As part of a settlement, Crist filmed a 90-second apology that aired on YouTube. —Jeff Royer
