Tom Petty Not Happy With GOP Politician

You know the Presidential election season is just around the corner when a candidate uses an artist song and the artist gets mad. Well, here we go!

Tom Petty is reportedly preparing to take legal action against Michele Bachmann’s campaign, after she played his 1977 hit “American Girl” at her 2012 announcement rally in Iowa Monday.

Petty’s manager tells NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell the rocker wasn’t pleased about the use of the song and is planning to send a cease-and-desist letter over the matter. It’s the second time Petty has asked a GOP politician to stop playing his music. During the 2004 campaign, Petty issued a similar letter to George W. Bush’s re-election campaign after it played the singer’s hit, “I Won’t Back Down,” at political events.

I don’t know about you but I think it’s great publicity for Tom.  If fact, makes me want to hear the song RIGHT NOW! So enjoy!
