Well, We Hate You Too
You know presidential campaign season is underway when bands start slamming candidates with opposing political views for using their music.
This time, its Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys who have a beef with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (not officially a 2016 presidential candidate yet, but almost certain to be one), after Walker used Murphys' "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" as intro music for his speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit Saturday.
"Please stop using our music in any way .. . we literally hate you !!! Love, Dropkick Murphys" the band wrote in a tweet Saturday.
Of course, the real question is this:
Who the hell is Drop Kick Murpys and what have they ever done??
Other than their families, has anybody ever heard of them?
And the reason why they think they are so important and does anybody care what they think?
Damned if I know.
