Dandy Warhols - Courtney Taylor-taylor Blasts U.k. Politicians Over Song Use

The Dandy Warhols frontman Courtney Taylor-taylor has blasted leaders of Britain's ruling Conservative Party for using the band's hit song Bohemian Like You at their annual conference.
Earlier this week (beg03Oct11), Primal Scream singer Bobby Gillespie hit out at the U.K.'s Home Secretary Theresa May and accused her of exiting the stage following her speech while the group's track Rocks played over the speaker system.
But now it's emerged the song played to close May's address to delegates was actually The Dandy Warhols' hit 2000 single - and the news has enraged Taylor-Taylor.
In a post on the band's official website, he writes, "Wtf (what the f**k)? Where do I b**ch about this? I'll tear their fuggin heads off. Well maybe not but this happened to us in an Arkansas gubernatorial race and it makes me super angry. And then I wanna puke.
"Why don't these a**holes have right-wing bands make them some right-wing music for their right-wing jerkoff politics? Oh, because right-wing people aren't creative, visionary or any fun to be around. Nor are they productive or even introspective about it."
