In March 2001, Frank Moore started using the song “Fuck The War” as the closer for his “Frank Moore’s Unlimited Possibilities” public access cable TV show. Shortly after 9/11, the singer/songwriter of the song “Fuck The War”, asked him to stop using it. He honored her request and instead played this clip:
From Frank Moore’s Shaman’s Den with Lori B, January 16, 2005:
Frank: I will not use names, but I lost my theme song.
Linda: We had a theme song for a while for this show, and we lost it because the singer songwriter …
Frank: “Fuck the War”.
Linda: It was called “Fuck the War”. That was the song. And it was right after 9/11 or shortly after that, the singer songwriter contacted us. She knew that we were using it. It was actually … we used her singing it from when she was on the show.
Frank: She wrote it before all that.
Linda: Yeah, actually we started it as a theme song before all that too. And so at the point where all that started happening was like, oh, my God, the song is so …
Lori: Why did she pull the song?
Linda: She was concerned that somebody would go after her for it.
Linda: She said, I’m sure you’ll understand. And we said, no, we don’t understand!
Frank: And now I just sing it.
Linda: Right. So now we actually stopped it when she asked us to stop it. But at a certain point, Frank said, you know, I’m just going to sing the song, we need to have it back. So it’s him naked at a punk club singing the song. And that’s the footage we use as the close of our cable show.
Frank: But she moved.
Linda: She was not native to the United States and she moved back to her native country.
Lori: I see.
Frank: Because …
Linda: Probably from fear, I would imagine. I mean, the last we heard from her, it seemed like that’s what she was involved in. Fear.
Lori: Oh my God. Fear.
