Van Halen to McCain: No You Can't

8/29/2008 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John McCain used a Van Halen song during his big speech earlier today and the band wants to make one thing clear -- they're not running with McCain.

Van Halen management tells us the band had no idea McCain was planning on using "Right Now" during his big entrance in Ohio telling us, "Permission was not sought or granted nor would it have been given."

For the record, Dubya used the same song during a bunch of his campaign speeches back in 2004, but sources close to the band tell us, "They're not political, they're just rock and roll."

No band or actor is going to sway my vote one way or the other. I don't car which "face" stumps for whom.

Give me a break Van Halen. This is the best free promo you could hope for. At some point in our lifetime, we will see that the GOP is the best chance for our country to thrive. TMZ - keep it fair and balanced. At least this woman has an honest husband and real family. Great stuff.

"For the record, Dubya used the same song during a bunch of his campaign speeches back in 2004..."

Yet MORE proof positive that McCain = Bush's third term. That and his voting record in the last 8 years. HA!!!

I allready saw one schumck say "she has no experience to be a second away from being prez". Excuse me, and pray tell
what experience does Nobama have from being one election away from being prez?? Argue all you want, but 2 years Senator vs. 2 years Governor?? Actually i'd say she has more experience than nobama does for just being prez, forget
the vice prez!!!
