Rock group Survivor blasts Kim Davis after ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ plays at rally: We wouldn’t grant her ‘rights to use Charmin’
Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis could face another court battle, this time over the use of the song “Eye of the Tiger” during the rally celebrating her release from jail, Variety reported.
“We did not grant Kim Davis any rights to use ‘My Tune -The Eye Of The Tiger,'” Survivor lead singer Frankie Sullivan posted on Facebook. “I would not grant her the rights to use Charmin!”
The song could be heard playing as Davis was walked to the stage by her attorney, Mat Staver, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), who has advocated for her since news surfaced of her refusal to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples, stating that it would break “God’s law.”
“C’mom [sic] Mike, you are not The Donald but you can do better than that,” Sullivan wrote, a reference to the GOP front-runner thus far, Donald Trump.
TMZ reported that a spokesperson for the band said it is “determined to protect the integrity of their music.”
Tuesday’s statement by the band comes after performers Neil Young and Buckwheat Zydeco also objected to their music being used at events for conservatives.
