The Silversun Pickups aren’t too thrilled with Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney. Romney, who is using the band’s track “Panic Switch”, was dealt a Cease-and-Desist order by the band. In a statement by lead singer Brian Aubert, he states:
“We don’t like people going behind our backs, using our music without asking, and we don’t like the Romney campaign. We’re nice, approachable people. We won’t bite. Unless you’re Mitt Romney!”
Silversun Pickups have streamed the first single off of their new album ‘Neck of the Woods’, due out on May 8th. “Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings)” can be streamed below:

There are 4 top 10 debuts this week, and a brand new #1 by a band who’s been on the countdown for months. Here is this week’s top 10!
