In yet another blow to the Gingrich campaign, a member of the band Survivor is suing the erstwhile frontrunner for using their song “Eye of the Tiger” during campaign appearances. The suit was filed in Chicago by Rude Music Inc., which is owned by Frank M. Sullivan III of Survivor. The band wrote the song for the movie Rocky III. Gingrich has been using “Eye of the Tiger” as a theme song since at least 2009, when he appeared at a conservative political action conference to strains of the 1982 hit.
