Actually, I thought this was very progressive on the part of the candidate, but I was disgusted all the same. And he's a hypocrite.

I was poring through one of my beloved Al Franken books yestersy and came across part of the chapter on Republican presidential candidates from 1996. Apparently, Pat Buchanan (a psychopathic conservative who believes that God made the world in six days and he didn't put gays in it either) enters the room to "We will Rock You".

Holy moly.

I challenge anyone to think of a worse disgrace to a song. What did the band ever do to ask for this???

i think it was Don't Stop me Now.

At least he did not disgrace a Fleetwood Mac song ...

The Bush eviction clock would be a good thing, if the Democrats could field a decent moderate candidate. Looks like the Democratic candidate will be a slave to either the unions or to pick-up driving klansmen. Unfortunately the Libertarians are not a reasonable option and there won't be a decent independant candidate either. I guess I'll just have to hold my nose and vote for the Halliburton (sic?) presidential candidate.

Did they? Oh god, that IS a disgrace!!!!

"i think it was Don't Stop me Now."

Well, it turned out to be suitable when you think about the war. Almost all the world was against it but no one could really stop Mr. Bush from attacking Iraq.
Everywhere in the world people went out on the streets and he just looked at them with such an ignorance! A**hole!

We Will Rock You was also used as an encouraging anthem for the troops in Iraq. I think that is the worst ever, if you consider the ideas of the author of the song about war.

'Almost all the world was against it'
Not really Sonja... If this wrong stupid war has started it's not only because of Bush, Blair, Miller and Berlusconi but also because of a lot of people who kept on believing it was the right thing to do.

It was used to encourage the troups? I didn't know that either!

"Not really Sonja... If this wrong stupid war has started it's not only because of Bush, Blair, Miller and Berlusconi but also because of a lot of people who ignorantly kept on believing it was the right thing to do."

I know, that's why I said "almost". :-)
We could say there were more people against the war than there were people supporting the war. Look at all the demonstrations everywhere! And even today there are still people out on the streets in London!

But this wasn't the topic, was it?

The WWRY-Iraq thing is true. They also used to play Another One Bites The Dust while dropping bombs. I also saw some pictures of bombs that had the words AOBTD written on them.

I believe Labour used We Are The Champions at some party conference in the past. I think Kinnock was involved so obviously it was never sung in triumph. Dreamer's Ball would be more apt.

Ahh the good old days.

Mind you only in a world so shitty could a man beaten in an election by John Major (during a recession) get a top job in the EU.

Dr. Laura (another conservative homophobe) was using "Friends Will Be Friends" as her bumper music awhile back. I think that was the same time she was referring to homosexuals as "biological errors". But apparently the biological error isn't severe enough to prevent one from making music Dr. Laura likes lol

If Freddie Mercury was a biological error, then I say make some more errors :)

Ahh, the boy from Bassendean. I punched ol' Rolf in the face for that little error. Not due to him being from Bassendean but for having that wobble board of his.

I'd have to say the recent use of 'I Want it All' in a car ad of some sorts. I was too angry to remember the name seeing as the original is a lot more...original. Why Freddie would be turning in his urn at this point in time!

You sure about that? I believe IWTBF was licensed to Shell during Freddie's lifetime. Maybe he didn't have as much of a problem as you think he should...

And Argos are currently using AKOM.

"And Argos are currently using AKOM"

Isn't AKOM featured on the INDEX advert?
Argos adverts have got Richard E Grant on them, I don't think they'd have AKOM as well. I'm sure it's INDEX.

"I think that was the same time she was referring to homosexuals as "biological errors"."

Please don't kill me for this, but what she said is true. In nature a male and a female are created mate with each other. If a male wants to mate with a male, it's an error made by the nature.

I'm not talking about gay rights and that kind of stuff now, only about the biological thing. And of course Freddie wasn't an error, the error was that little thing that made him gay.

Please don't get furious, this is my point of view. I'd also like to add that most of us are to some extent errors or have erros. People with allergies or some other diseases have errors that cause troubles. To make this post 100% stupid and pointless I'll say that all people have errors made by the nature.

Acytually, the Democrats have produced some very good candidates. George Will is very worried.

I'm from Spain, and during the dictature, Franco used to salutate as Hitler did with their arms...

Well, there're discos where "fascist" boys make a file and salutate as Hitler and Franco did while the song WWRY sounds... that's terrible.


An interview? Oh, don't be ridiculous...
