Rockers Survivor are suing U.S. presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich for using their Eye Of The Tiger hit as a campaign anthem without permission.
Bosses for Rude Music Inc., which represents the group, have filed suit in Illinois, claiming the Republican has been using the song illegally since 2009.
Gingrich's campaign bosses have even boasted about the power of the 1982 song on his website - following a recent campaign event in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, they wrote, "Mr. Gingrich entered the packed Moose Lodge for a speech as the song pulsed...", according to
Rmi bosses are asking a judge to order the politician and his team to stop using the song. They are also asking for unspecified damages.
Gingrich isn't the first Republican to upset rock stars - Jackson Browne sued John MCCain for using the song Running on Empty in a political ad in 2008.
