Ann and Nancy Wilson Will Bitchslap Sarah Palin



Oh shit, that Palin broad has done gone and pissed off the Wilson sisters. Ann and Nancy Wilson, the Seattle sisters who wrote and performed the absolute best power ballads of the 80s, also wrote a little track in the '70s called "Barracuda." Well, last night (or whenever) Sarah Palin, whose nickname in high school or tae kwon do class or the circus or the Teamsters or the PTA or whatever was "Sarah Barracuda," was strutting around to the strains of this feminist hard rock classic at the end of the Republican National Convention and when the Wilson sisters found out about this they looked at each other, flicked their hair out of their eyes, scowled, and emitted a resounding "Bitch, please."

Reads their official statement:

"Rock Group Heart Condemn The Use of The Song Barracuda at The Republican Convention. Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart have informed the McCain/Palin Campaign that Universal Music Publishing and Sony BMG have sent a cease-and-desist notice to not use one of Heart's classic songs "Barracuda," as the congratulatory theme for Sarah Palin. The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted that permission. We have asked the Republican campaign not to use our music. We hope our wishes will be honored."

And then, because these sisters are pissed, they released another statement saying

"Sarah Palin’s views and values in NO WAY represent us as American women. We ask that our song ‘Barracuda’ no longer be used to promote her image. The song ‘Barracuda’ was written in the late 70s as a scathing rant against the soulless, corporate nature of the music business, particularly for women. (The ‘barracuda’ represented the business.) While Heart did not and would not authorize the use of their song at the RNC, there’s irony in Republican strategists’ choice to make use of it there."

Yay for the Wilson sisters, feminiminism, and calling a bitch out!

The same thing happened when David Duke from Louisiana used Bryan Adam's song "Everything I Do I Do It For You". It is hard to understand why politians do not seek permission to use these songs first before using them. Is it because they know they will not get permission? And if so, why would they want to use it in the first place. The one thing I can say for Palin is at least she did not use a lame song like something from Celine Dion.
