Frankie Sullivan sues Newt Gingrich for using Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" in his campaign, and former frontman Dave Bickler performs "A Nation Like No Other." (3:59)

>> Stephen: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH, WELCOME BACK.

FOLKS, AFTER HIS PRIMARY

LOSS TO MITT ROMNEY IN

FLORIDA, NEWT GINGRICH IS

CLEARLY THE UNDERDOG.

WHICH MEANS HE MIGHT BE ABLE

TO HITCH A RIDE TO NEVADA

STRAPPED TO THE ROOF OF

MITT'S CAR.

BUT NOW NEWT IS FACING A

SURPRISING ATACK FROM THE

PAST.

>> NEWT GINGRICH IS BEING

SUED FOR UNAUTHORIZED USE OF

THE SONG EYE OF THE TIGER.

>> GINGRICH'S CAMPAIGN PLAYS

THE SONG AT HIS RALLIES.

EYE OF THE TIGER WAS A BIG

HIT FOR THE GROUP SURVIVOR

THERE 1928.

>> Stephen: YES, EYE OF THE

TIGER, THE POWER ANTHEM FROM

ROCKY 3.

AND ROCKY IS AN OBVIOUS FAR

LEGAL FOR NEWT.

HE'S AN UNDERDOG, A BORN

SCRAPPER, AND HE'S FIGHTING

FOR THE CHANCE TO BE SMACKED

AROUND BY A BLACK GUY.

BUT FOLKS--

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

BUT AS MUCH AS I LOVE NEWT,

HE VIOLATED SOMETHING I LOVE

EVEN MORE.

COPYRIGHT LAW.

AND NEWT SHOULD BE MORE

SENSITIVE TO COPYRIGHT

INFRINGEMENT.

BECAUSE AS SURVIVOR

GUITARIST AND CO-AUTHOR OF

THE SONG FRANK SULLIVAN

POINTS OUT HIS COMPLAINT,

NEWT HIMSELF IS THE AUTHOR

OR CO-AUTHOR OF OVER 40

COPYRIGHTED WORKS.

AND THAT DOESN'T EVEN COUNT

HIS ALBUM OF HOEDOWN SONG

PARODIES NEWTENANNY.

WELL THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY

TO EVEN THE SCORE.

I SAY AN EYE FOR AN EYE OF

THE TIGER.

I BELIEVE SOMEONE SHOULD

SING NEWT'S LATEST BOOK, A

NATION LIKE NO OTHER WITHOUT

PERMISSION.

TO DO SO, PLEASE WELCOME THE

ORIGINAL SINGER OF SURVIVOR'S

EYE OF THE TIGER, MR. DAVE

BICKLER.

HIT IT, DAVE.

WHAT, WE'RE GOING GO TO
