7 Campaign Song Suggestions For Michele Bachmann (Now That Tom Petty Told Her To Stop Using "American Girl")


Michele Bachmann thought the iconic Tom Petty hit “American Girl” was the perfect song to help launch her campaign.

Petty (vocally) disagreed with her.

That may be, Entertainment Weekly pointed out, because Petty doesn’t see eye to eye with conservatives.

He also lashed out when George W. Bush used his song “Won’t Back Down” at a rally.

So perhaps Bachmann should look to the (admittedly slim) pool of right-leaning musicians.
