Any chance of John McCain becoming friends with the Foo Fighters is totally gone. In a statement issued by the Foo Fighters Wednesday, the band claimed the McCain camp has used the song "My Hero" for his own purposes, without their consent.

If that wasn't bad enough, the band is also pretty since they believe McCain's use of the song "perverts the original sentiment of the lyric." According to the Foo Fighters the song is a celebration of "the common man and his extraordinary potential."

The band hopes McCain will wise up and stop using their song, they also hope he'll start showing some respect to music artists by asking their permission first.

"It's frustrating and infuriating that someone who claims to speak for the American people would repeatedly show such little respect for creativity and intellectual property," the band said in their official statement. "We hope that the McCain campaign will do the right thing and stop using our song -- and start asking artists' permission in general."

I guess McCain won't be getting the Foo Fighters' vote.
