Indie rockers MGMT have sued French President Nicolas Sarkozy for using their song “Kids” in online advertisements without permission, the BBC reports. Sarkozy’s party reportedly says that it used the song inadvertently and has offered to pay the band a symbolic one-Euro fee — an offer that a lawyer speaking for MGMT is quoted as calling “insulting.” MGMT’s American label, Columbia Records, had no comment on the story when contacted by EW.
