Rock Band The Silversun Pickups Ask Mitt Romney to Stop Playing Its Song

Alternative rock band The Silversun Pickups has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Mitt Romney, asking him to stop playing its music at his events.

"Without any regard for copyright or intellectual property laws, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has, without permission, begun to use Silversun Pickups' 2009 smash 'Panic Switch' at campaign stops across the country," lead singer-guitarist Brian Aubert said in a statement, according to The Los Angeles Times. "Neither the band nor its representatives were contacted to gain permission for the use of the song and the band has no intention of endorsing the Romney campaign. The band's attorney issued a cease-and-desist today."read more
