Man, the GOP ticket just can’t catch a break with their favorite musicians. First Paul Ryan says he loves Rage Against the Machine, and Tom Morello responds “Paul Ryan… is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades”. Then Silversun Pickups sends a cease and desist letter to Mitt Romney to stop using “Panic Switch”. And now Ryan tries using Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and gets shot down by Dee Snyder.
Maybe they should use something by, I dunno, Kurt Cobain? Jimi Hendrix? Cass Elliot?
