Can you hear the 2016 presidential election in the distance? The musical group Dropkick Murphys certainly can.

The Boston-based punk band has asked that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) to stop using their music because they “hate” him.

Walker was in Des Moines Saturday (Jan. 24) at the Iowa Freedom Summit and took to the stage with the band’s “I’m Shipping Up To Boston.” After that, the band took to their Twitter:
