Alternative band Silversun Pickups asked the Romney campaign to stop using its song “Panic Switch.”

The Los Angeles-based band’s attorney sent a cease and desist letter to the Republican presidential candidate’s campaign on Wednesday. A news release says neither the band nor its representatives were contacted for permission to use the 2009 alternative rock hit and the group “has no intention of endorsing the Romney campaign.”

“We don’t like people going behind our backs, using our music without asking, and we don’t like the Romney campaign,” Silversun Pickups lead singer Brian Aubert said in the statement. “We’re nice, approachable people. We won’t bite. Unless you’re Mitt Romney! We were very close to just letting this go because the irony was too good. While he is inadvertently playing a song that describes his whole campaign, we doubt that ‘Panic Switch’ really sends the message he intends.”
