This "don't use my song" response is so boring. I think artists should be glad when a cause misappropriates their work and thennimmediately grant rights for others to use their song as parodoy or commentary (or create one themselves). If Cruz is gonnna use Stipes' song to get publicity, the Stipe should harness that publicity and get creative in response. Fight ignornance with creativity. Outrage is passe. Although you do have to admire his directness on this issue!
