Tom Petty tells Michele Bachmann: "Don't play that song!"

-via Hollywood Reporter:
On Monday, [Michele] Bachmann officially announced her candidacy for U.S. president. She left the stage as Petty's "American Girl" blared over the loudspeaker. Uh-oh.

Petty is unhappy with Bachmann's choice of exit music, according to political consultant Matt Ortega, and is in the process of sending a cease-and-desist letter. NBC News has also confirmed the report.

This wouldn't be the first time that Petty has fired off a legal letter for political uses of his music. Previously, the singer sent George W. Bush a C&D over his presidential campaign's use of the song, "I Won't Back Down."

Hit it, Aretha!!
