Music group 'Dropkick Murphy's' (never heard of them) doesn't want Scott Walker to use their song anymore. He used a clip of their music at the Iowa Freedom Summit Saturday
This has happened a few times in the last few years, usually the people who are being told to stop playing music are conservatives.
Here are some:
The group Heart told Sarah Palin to stop playing 'Barracuda'
Mellencamp told John McCain to stop playing 'Our Country' (Both of these in 2008)
Tom Petty told Michele Bachmann stop playing 'American Girl' at her campaign stops
Twisted Sister told Paul Ryan to stop playing 'We're Not Gonna Take It' at his events
Boston-based Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys admonished Scott Walker for using their music for his political purposes, issuing a scathing tweet that they “literally hate” the Wisconsin governor.
The band took exception to Mr. Walker’s blaring of the band’s “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” as he took the stage Saturday at the Iowa Freedom Summit, tweeting to the Republican governor to “please stop using our music in any way … we literally hate you !!!”
The Dropkick Murphys have been at odds with Mr. Walker since 2011, when he introduced and brought to fruition a bill that limited the collective bargaining rights of unions. The band responded by selling pro-union T-shirts on their official website, A.V. Club reported.
