Tom Petty To Michele Bachmann: Stop Using “American Girl”

Posted by | June 28, 2011 23:04 | Filed under: Top Stories

Tom Petty is considering legal action against Michele Bachmann for using “American Girl” at her presidential announcement rally.

Petty’s manager tells NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell the rocker wasn’t pleased about the use of the song and is planning to send a cease-and-desist letter over the matter. It’s the second time Petty has asked a GOP politician to stop playing his music. During the 2004 campaign, Petty issued a similar letter to George W. Bush’s re-election campaign after it played the singer’s hit, “I Won’t Back Down,” at political events.

Bachmann’s campaign has not responded to the potential suit.
