Campaign songs have caused more of a ruckus in this presidential race than teenage pregnancy and extra-marital affairs combined. It all started with a John scandal, when John McCain stole “Our Country” by John Cougar Mellencamp from John Edwards after he got axed in the primaries. Then, Mellencamp told McCain to stop using the track, because the liberal musician didn’t want his tune affiliated with the Republican candidate. After that, hippie balladeer Jackson Browne sued McCain’s campaign to protest the use of his “Running On Empty” in an attack ad against Barack Obama.

No matter who you’re voting for, or who wins, this is quite possibly the most important presidential election in US history. And it’s pretty awesome that we get to be a part of making history by voting.
