Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos has vociferously responded to the band's U.S. label Epic and parent company Sony for allowing McDonald's website to feature a Franz Ferdinand song. "Dirty bastards. Stupid arrogant motherfucking pig-brained arseholes. I'd rather eat a cow-pat on a bun than a bloody McDonalds," Kapranos tweeted. Kapranos went on to direct his anger solely at the Epic/Sony duo rather than McDonald's. "I'm not really pissed off with McDonald's. They're just the same as any other psychopathic corporation - no more evil, no less." The band's U.K. label, Domino, had nothing to do with letting McDonald's use the song.

The site on which the song was used has since been taken down. (via NME)
