Peter Gabriel Wants Music Pulled From Rush Limbaugh After Sandra Fluke Rant


By Daniel Gates




Peter Gabriel has pulled his music from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in the wake of the controversy concerning the conservative host’s comments about birth control advocate Sandra Fluke.

Gabriel’s hit “Sledgehammer” can be heard in the background during Limbaugh’s rant about Georgetown law student Fluke (whom the radio host calls a “slut” and “prostitute”).


On his Facebook page, Gabriel asked that the following statement be posted:

“Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh’s extraordinary attack on Sandra Fluke. It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter’s work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair aggressive and ignorant comments.”

Limbaugh’s remarks about Fluke have already led to a cavalcade of advertisers leaving his show.

“The Middle” star Patricia Heaton, meanwhile, caught flak for attacking Fluke on Twitter; she’s since apologized.
