Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker apparently likes The Dropkick Murphys more than the Murphs like him.
The Boston Celt -punk band took to Twitter to call Walker for using their song "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" at his political events -- most recently at the Iowa Freedom Summit over the weekend.
“@ScottWalker @GovWalker Please stop using our music in any way. We literally hate you. Love, Dropkick Murphys,”

Walker should heed the story of another governor, ex-Florida Gov. Charlie Crist who appropriated a song from a rock band The Talking Heads' "Road to Nowhere," without permission. (Warning: The following video is painful to watch.)
Notice Crist didn't use "Psycho Killer" when he ran for governor of Florida last year.
I know know how these artists feel. I hated it when Lyndon Larouche used my song at the campaign rallies. (Just kidding, just kidding ...)
Here is the Dropkick song that started the fuss:
