The Foo Fighters are mad at John McCain for using their song "My Hero" at his campaign rallies. A similar thing happened when Heart said they didn't want Sarah Palin to use "Barracuda." Legally speaking, the candidates can use whatever song they want at their rallies, but having Dave Grohl and the Wilson sisters mad at you just makes your campaign look desperate. Fortunately, there's plenty of songs out there that John and Sarah can use, as well as songs that would be great for Barack and Joe. Here's my picks: Barack Obama - AC/DC, "Back in Black." Get it? It's called "Back in Black," and Barack Obama is . . . someone who would fix the economy so it is no longer in the red, but "in the black." Also, AC/DC rocks, and it's way better than that will.i.am. "Yes We Can" song. John McCain - Blue Oyster Cult, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper." John McCain is old. We all know this. Yet McCain doesn't really bring his age up very much. Why not embrace it? With this song, McCain would be saying, "yes, I'm old, but I'm fighting off death because I'm not afraid.
In fact, I bet death is a little afraid of me." A close second choice for McCain would be Hall & Oates’ "Out of Touch." But only because they never recorded a song called "Erratic." Sarah Palin - No Doubt, "Don’t Speak." Kind of self-explanatory. If this song was played whenever Palin was introduced to give a speech, the lyrics might remind her to just keep her damn mouth shut. Or if Palin wants to use her alleged sex appeal, she could always go with Katy Perry’s "I Kissed a Girl." Not that she actually has ever done this, but something tells me Sarah Palin wouldn’t be above giving voters the wrong impression if it meant some extra votes. Joe Biden - Warren Zevon, "Werewolves of London." Yes, I know Joe Biden is not a werewolf. At least as far as I know. But Joe shouldn’t use this whole song, just the part near the end when Warren says, "and his hair was perfect." Whenever Joe Biden is introduced anywhere, that clip of the song should be playing on a loop.
