Soprano's band says Demo ad offensive

Posted by David Postman

The leader of the band whose song is used as the theme to The Sopranos says the music was misused when state Democrats made it the soundtrack to an Dino Rossi attack video. According to the Wired blog, A3 leader Larry Love said in a statement:

We are against the use of any of our songs in this manner. This advert was ethnically offensive.

Love had some campaign-season advice, too:

If any political parties want to carry out tawdry campaigning utilizing radical political music, A3 suggest they check out the following: Alabama, The Charlie Daniels Band and Ted Nugent. We like to keep it underground. We make pop music for intelligent people, not politicians.
