WQLZ Music Minute


March 7, 2012

 

Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop

 

Don't wanna talk about politics? Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine may surprise you with his conservative politics and with his Christian beliefs, but he wears both of those things on his sleeves proudly, regardless of his music being framed as devil worship tripe by conservative evangelicals. Recently the news was that Mustaine had gotten into the political game by endorsing GOP Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum but this isn’t the case, according to Mustaine. On his twitter account earlier this week he said “Contrary to how some people have interpreted my words, I have not endorsed any presidential candidate.” Mustaine’s most recent album with Megadeth, Th1rt3en out now.

 

Is it fair use? In other music/political news, GOP Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich is asking a judge in Chicago to throw out a case where the former Speaker of the House is being sued for using the song “Eye of the Tiger” at campaign rallies. The lawsuit was filed by Frank Sullivan, who co-wrote the song. He says that Gingrich has used the songs since 2009 but Gingrich says that his use is considered fair use. It’s not the first time that musicians have been upset that politicians use their tunes during campaign rallies. Another recent example is Tom Petty picking on Michelle Bachman for using the tune “American Girl.” Back in 2008, Sarah Palin was taken to task for using the song “Barracuda.” I guess there wasn’t a song called “Cougar.” Catch the Music Minute every weekday with the Free Beer and Hot Wings Show on 92-7 WQLZ, the Rock Station
