Every four years, the American public are treated to a disgustingly expensive pro wrestling event know as election season. Your vote kinda sorta counts, except when it doesn’t. “Last election, an Iowa or New Hampshire voter had the same impact as five Super Tuesday voters put together.” You have more power in a rigged American Idol contest.
Now my advice to politicians is SCREW YOU! to stop being so clueless when it comes to popular copyrighted songs. This is 2012, there’s cameras recording your every move, and odds are, the artist who’s creation you are exploiting hates you!
Mitt Romney’s campaign used Los Angeles alt-rockers Silversun Pickups’ 2009 track “Panic Switch” at an event, and he was greeted with an instant cease and desist letter. Frontman Brian Aubert explains the irony of “Panic Switch”:
We were very close to just letting this go because the irony was too good. While he is inadvertently playing a song that describes his whole campaign, we doubt that ‘Panic Switch’ really sends the message he intends.”
Hey Mitt Romney, I suggest you switch over to Megadeath ASAP!
