    Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich is the latest in a long line of politicians being sued for using a song without permission along the campaign trail. Gingrich used the band Survivor's anthemic song "Eye of the Tiger" at both political and campaign events without asking. The song was popular in 1982 and was used as the theme song in Rocky III.

    Rude Music filed suit in Illinois federal court earlier this work.

    The suit claims that Gingrich has been using the tune since 2009.

    Do you have a suggestion for a new campaign trail song for Newt Gingrich?
