[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tom Petty[/lastfm] may not a fan of Michele Bachmann.

It seemed as if Republican presidential hopeful’s campaign team was going to use Petty’s song American Girl as the candidate’s “theme song,” but the singer is opposed to the team using his famous tune.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tom Petty[/lastfm] does not want Michele Bachmann using his 1977 song, American Girl, in her campaign events. The song was played when the Republican presidential candidate left the stage in Waterloo, Iowa, after making a nationally televised speech. Petty’s manager will be asking the candidate’s team not to use his song again.
