No to Palin, but Heart says yes to Hillary

They told Sarah Palin to stop using their rock song, “Barracuda,” but two of Heart’s core members say they’ll gladly lend the 1977 hit to Hillary Clinton if she throws her hat in the ring for president.

“Whatever Hillary Clinton needs from me, she’s got,” Ann Wilson recently told ITK.

Back in 2008, Wilson and her sister, Nancy, emailed a statement to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and the former Alaska governor’s presidential campaign requesting that “Barracuda” stop being used as a theme for Palin, the VP nominee.

“The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted that permission,” the pair wrote.

After the song continued to be played, Nancy Wilson told EW.com, “I think it’s completely unfair to be so misrepresented. I feel completely [expletive] over.” 

But the duo was singing a different tune for former secretary of State Clinton, saying, “We’d love to give her our song.” 

When ITK inquired whether “Barracuda” would be among the songs in their repertoire that they’d be willing to share with any Clinton campaign, Ann Wilson seemingly took a slight jab at Palin, saying Clinton would be “too smart to ask for that” song.
