Heart (Ann and Nancy Wilson) asked the FRNC to quit using their song "Barracuda" for Sarah Palin (it was her nickname in high school) and issued this statement. Here's a link to the article.

"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."

Van Halen, John Mellencamp, and Jackson Browne have also issued similar warnings to the Republicans about the use of their songs.
