Why David Byrne Sued the Governor of Florida


Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is being sued for $1 million for using a Talking Heads song in an ad without the band’s permission. The band’s ex-lead singer, David Byrne, sued the governor Monday in Tampa for using “Road to Nowhere” in an online attack ad against Marco Rubio. Rubio is the likely Republican nominee in the race for Florida’s open U.S. Senate seat. Crist is running as an independent. Crist’s campaign spokeswoman didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment. Byrne said in a statement that his fans might lose respect for him if he lets his songs be used in ads.
