The Xx Furious At British Leader's 'Unauthorised Use' Of Song
Mercury Prize winners The XX have blasted British Prime Minister David Cameron - for using their music without permission during a political rally.
The British band is furious that organisers of the Conservative Party's annual conference played one of their songs during this year's (10) event in Birmingham, England this week (begs04Oct10).
The rockers and executives from their record company Young Turks slammed the politicians for unauthorised use of the music - and have vowed never to vote for the party.
In a post on their Twitter.com blog, a spokesman for the label writes, "Apparently David Cameron and the Tories used an XX song during their party conference. The XX/Young Turks weren't invited to any party, didn't approve the use of their music at the party and certainly don't approve of said party."
