Primal Scream have criticised the Conservative Party after Home Secretary Theresa May used their single 'Rocks' as her walking-off music at the Tory party conference yesterday.
The band said that it was inappropriate for May to use the 1994 Give Out But Don't Give Up track because of her political differences from the band.
"Primal Scream are totally disgusted that the Home Secretary Theresa May ended her speech at the Tory Party conference with our song 'Rocks'," a band statement to Q magazine read.
"How inappropriate. Didn't they research the political history of our band? Hasn't she listened to the words? Does she even know what getting your rocks off means? No. She is a Tory; how could she?"
It continued: "Primal Scream are totally opposed to the coalition government, Cameron, Osborne, Gove, Howard, Clegg, etc.
"They are legalised bullies passing new laws to ensure the wealthy stay wealthy, taking the side of big business while eradicating workers rights and continuing their attacks on young people, single parents and OAPs by slashing education and social security budgets, in effect persecuting the poor for being poor.
"We would like to distance ourselves from this sick association. The Tories are waging a war on the disenfranchised. They are the enemy."
Primal Scream are currently working on a new album due for release in 2012.
