Silversun Pickups ask Romney campaign to stop using song

Los Angeles Times: Silversun Pickups, a rock group, has issued a cease-and-desist order to Mitt Romney’s campaign asking it to stop playing their song “Panic Switch” at events.

"We don’t like people going behind our backs, using our music without asking, and we don’t like the Romney campaign," Silversun Pickups lead singer-guitarist Brian Aubert said in a statement issued Wednesday. "We’re nice, approachable people. We won’t bite. Unless you’re Mitt Romney! We were very close to just letting this go because the irony was too good. While he is inadvertently playing a song that describes his whole campaign, we doubt that ‘Panic Switch’ really sends the message he intends."
