The Foo Fighters have asked John McCain to stop using one of their songs in his campaign.

While I’m for even the slightest setback to the apPAlLINg Republican campaign, I must roll my eyes a bit at the offense of the lyrics being “perverted”: I’ve long found their lyrics among the least enthralling in the Top 40. (And – unlike the Foos – that’s saying something.)

The rockers sent out a missive telling the Republican presidential candidate to stop using “My Hero.” They said they learned it was being use through news reports.

“The saddest thing about this is that `My Hero’ was written as a celebration of the common man and his extraordinary potential,” the band said in a statement. “To have it appropriated without our knowledge and used in a manner that perverts the original sentiment of the lyric just tarnishes the song.”
