Newt Gingrich is in trouble. And this time, it doesn’t involve an ex-wife or the polls. Gingrich is in trouble for allegedly using the song “Eye of the Tiger” without permission. He’s being sued for unspecified damages in an Illinois federal court.
“Eye of the Tiger” is owned by Rude Music Inc. and was made famous in Rocky III. Rude Music Inc. says that Gingrich has used the song ever since 2009. They reportedly have evidence that he used the song in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
In addition to unspecified damages, Rude Music Inc. also wants the judge to order Newt Gingrich to stop using the song immediately.
You can listen to the song below … but be warned that it will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
