    Should artists have the right to veto the use of their music by the campaigns of politicians they disagree with?

    Has anyone been disappointed by hearing a song they liked being played during an advert they didn't like?

    I was watching a video in a news article this morning which included drone footage of war-torn Syria, the backing track was a sort of electro-dub of the soldiers radio communications. It made the footage appear like an advert of a Terminator movie. Very poor taste.

    It's only a matter of a short time before today's hippest hits are used as backing tracks for cookery magazine TV shows.

    I've always had a bit of a problem with The Cars "Drive" ~ a song about whether or not some lonely supermodel in a tiny white dress has got a bloke with a mullet hairdo (and a car) to go home with and rodger now that the bar has closed ~ being the indelible soundtrack for the 1985 Ethiopian famine.
