Rocker Dave Grohl is furious after learning American President GEORGE W Bush used the Foo Fighters track TIMES LIKE THESE at a campaign rally.

The former NIRVANA star is a staunch supporter of Bush's Democratic rival John Kerry, and didn't appreciate the US leader using his song in a political arena.

He says, "I don't give a s**t if he likes our band, but I take it personally when a politician that doesn't represent my personal beliefs uses music that I poured my heart and soul into for his personal gain."

Rather than issuing a cease-and-desist letter, Grohl "took action" by performing as a recently rally for Kerry in Iowa, where he formed MY HERO, Times like These and LEARN TO FLY.

He adds, "I sang those songs, which are supposed to represent love, hope and compassion for a person that I believe represents all of those things."
