Not their soul sister: Train yanks song from anti-equality website;

A nice piece of action from the band who gave us the most ubiquitous ear worm of 2010:

United States soft-rock band Train are "upset" after their song Marry Me was used in a New Zealand anti-gay marriage website.

Family First website Protectmarriage.org.nz featured the music video for Marry Me, but the San Francisco-based band was alerted to its use by a New Zealander through Twitter.

Perhaps the site would have better luck finding a band with a song called "Ban Me." That is, after all, the true intent, no matter what the "protect marriage" crowd's lyrics sheet might insist.
