John McCain stirred the Foo Fighters by using one of their songs.
The Foo Fighters have slammed US presidential candidate John McCain for using one of their songs without permission.
According to the rockers, the Republican senator's use of My Hero goes against what the song is about, saying it was written as "a celebration of the common man and his extraordinary potential".
The band also claimed the incident is not the first time the candidate has used songs without seeking permission from the artists and called on his to stop playing their track, which is found on their second album The Colour and the Shape.
In a statement, the four piece added: "It's frustrating and infuriating that someone who claims to speak for the American people would repeatedly show such little respect for creativity and intellectual property."
Last month, Foos frontman Dave Grohl told BBC Radio 1's Chris Moyles that the band may take a long break after they play two shows at Wembley Stadium next year.
