VH Running with the Devil But Not McCain

Van Halen are surprised and quite upset that their song "Right Now" was used at an Ohio campaign stop by Sen. John McCain. According to the band's management "Permission was not sought or granted nor would it have been given" for use of the song.

The party-heavy Van Halen, who recently wrapped up a tour with original singer David Lee Roth--returning to the fold after 22 years--are not known for having any political leanings. Former VH vocalist Sammy Hagar, who is the voice heard on "Right Now", is known to be politically conservative, but it's doubtful he had anything to do with this use of the song.
