Boston Tells Huckabee to Suck It

From the New York Post’s Page Six:

The founder of the rock band Boston is enraged that Mike Huckabee is using his band’s hit “More Than a Feeling” on the campaign trail. He’s written a letter to Huckabee demanding the GOP candidate stop using it. “Boston has never endorsed a political candidate, and with all due respect, would not start by endorsing a candidate who is the polar opposite of most everything Boston stands for,” wrote Tom Scholz. “In fact, although I’m impressed you learned my bass guitar part on ‘More Than a Feeling,’ I am an Obama supporter.”

Good to know Boston stands for SOMETHING! Tho' as a Baptist minister the Huck should know better than to use SECULAR music for theme songs.

He could just send Fuckabee a bill for performance royalties, say for 10 beeeeelion dollars. The is of course contingent on his right to collect said royalties :)

Other than their carefully layered, studio-perfect rock anthems and iconic guitar-spaceship covers, Boston is known for two things: One, having the (at the time) biggest-selling debut album in rock history and Two, setting a new standard for litigiousness.

Note to Huckabee: Rip someone else off. Someone who's never beaten a record label in court.
