Flipping The Panic Switch

According to a recent Associated Press report: "The Silversun Pickups want Mitt Romney's presidential campaign to immediately stop the use of the rock group's song Panic Switch."

Well, alrighty then, The Silversun Pickups? Never heard of them, but then again I don't really follow pop music much these days. Curiosity got the better of me, so I pulled them up on YouTube.

Said Silversun Pickups lead singer Brian Aubert, "We don't like people going behind our backs, using our music without asking, and we don't like the Romney campaign. We're nice, approachable people. We won't bite. Unless you're Mitt Romney! We were very close to just letting this go because the irony was too good. While he is inadvertently playing a song that describes his whole campaign, we doubt that 'Panic Switch' really sends the message he intends."

Speaking for the Oracle, it would be refreshing to hear what message Romney intends.
