Gabriel to Limbaugh: Lay off my tunes

It looks like Rush Limbaugh might have to stoop to using Ted Nugent’s music as soundtracks for his rants. I can’t think of any other rocker who might be a good fit. From USA Today:

Peter Gabriel doesn’t want Rush Limbaugh’s radio show to use his music, in the wake of the Sandra Fluke controversy.

Gabriel’s song Sledgehammer played in the background while Limbaugh called Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” after she testified at a congressional hearing about contraception, reports CBS News.

On his Facebook page, a note was posted from Gabriel’s reps saying the rocker was “appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh’s extraordinary attack.”

The statement adds, “It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter’s work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair aggressive and ignorant comments. “
