Heart Disses Sarah "Barracuda"

"Heart", the washed up rock duo of sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson from the 1970s is whining about the use of their song "Barracuda". SF Gate:

    Heart stars Ann and Nancy Wilson have slammed U.S. presidential candidate John McCain for using their hit song "Barracuda" as his campaign's theme song without their prior permission.

    Republican leader McCain chose the song as the theme track for his running mate Sarah Palin -- whose high-school nickname was "Sarah Barracuda" because of her forceful style of playing basketball.

    But the Wilsons are furious their song has been linked in with the McCain campaign trail, and are demanding the track is scrapped from further promotional duties.

    Ann Wilson first became aware of the use of her track after watching Palin's speech on TV on Wednesday.

    According to TMZ.com, the pair has sent a "cease and desist" letter to McCain and Palin's representatives.

    In the letter, a representative for the duo says, "The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted that permission.

Gee, you think a washed up, long-forgotten, "whatever happened to..." band would be glad for the exposure, considering that anyone under the age of - oh, I don't know - 60 never heard of them. But I guess Ann and Nancy let their personal politics get in the way of marketing and revenue.

Here's an idea - just off the top of my head - for Ann, pictured on the left in the below photo. Hey Ann, why not console yourself by consuming another truck load of cheesecakes? Is it me, or does she resemble a black, wrinkly Goodyear Blimp?

Don't they know how many people will go out and buy one of their CDs due to that coverage? What a couple of morons.
Ann could buy another gross of cheesecakes with the profits!

My bad making fun of the appearance of a former rock band due who has let herself go. I think she need more eyeliner (LOL), what do you thing, Bug?
gosh they look like a couple washed up old hippes... What is it bout the left lately, I mean the GOP is uposed to be old whit ude and we got the babe!
I think she USED to be something to look at... now she's just scary.
Damn! That looks like you in drag! Nice cleavage, Drake.

Nancy has aged much better than Ann. But they do resemble washed up hippies. I agree.
Bug, I dunno about Ann...pics from Nancy in the 70s show her looking pretty hot. Ann isn't quite as scary as the Code Pink female that you have on your blog, the one
I commented on. ;-)

You had to tell the world about my dressing in drag, didn't you? Well, I then have to tell the world a secret about you.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Modesto is my bitch gimp. He sure is. I have himn locked in a 4x5 foot box as we speak.
