Kim Davis may have had the guts and the glory to stand up against gay marriage, but what she didn't have was the expressed written consent of the people who created “Eye of the Tiger” to play their song at her rally.
When Davis walked out of the doors of Kentucky's Carter County Detention Center, she was greeted by presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee and a prison release rally thrown in her honor.
What happened next really can't be summed up in words, so you should probably just watch video from the event here.
This RUINED “Eye of the Tiger” for me, and trust me, I LOVE “Eye of the Tiger,” so that's saying a lot.
Then Frankie Sullivan, a member of the band Survivor, posted this to Facebook and all was right again.
NO! We did not grant Kim Davis any rights to use "My Tune -The Eye Of The Tiger." I would not grant her the rights to... Posted by Frankie Sullivan on Tuesday, September 8, 2015
Mashable reports the “See Ya really SoooooooonnnnnnN” comment could actually be an issue for Huckabee and Davis.
In 2012, Newt Gingrich was forced to settle with Sullivan after he used “Eye of the Tiger” during his presidential campaign.
Why couldn't Kim Davis walk out to a song we all hate? Like, ruin a song we never liked to begin with.
Like, I say, go with “Achy Breaky Heart” or “Photograph.”
