Heart – Barracuda

Heart’s galloping hard rocker Barracuda, from 1977, made #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. According to Wikipedia, the song is a slam against a record company that claimed the female members were lesbians.

Yet straight-laced conservative 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin still tried using the tune at her campaign rallies. Heart was not happy.

Palin’s nickname as a high school basketballer was “Sarah Barracuda.”
