Indie band/love of my eardrums, The National have made no secret about where their political affiliations lie in this election, playing various fundraisers for president Obama, selling special T-shirts, etc. And now a pro-Mitt Romney group has come along with the ultimate no-no, using their track "Fake Empire" in one of his latest adverts. Of course upon hearing of this the band are furious and took to the youtube page to post their rage upon the track being used without permission, saying:
Our music was used without our permission in this ad. The song they’re using was written about the same backward, con game policies Romney is proposing. We encourage all students to educate themselves about the differences between the inclusive, pro-social, compassionate, forward-thinking policies of President Obama and the self-serving politics of the neo-conservative movement and Mitt Romney. Every single person involved in the creation of the music you're using is voting for President Obama.
Feel free to vist the YouTube page here and upvote their comment so it stays at the top. Check out the song below...
