On September 24, 1988 Bobby McFerrin’s song Don’t Worry, Be Happy was at the top of the charts. This song was used in George H. W. Bush’s 1988 U.S. presidential election as Bush’s official presidential campaign song (without Bobby McFerrin’s permission or endorsement).

McFerrin protested the use of this song, stating that he was going to vote against Bush. He stopped performing this song altogether to make his point more clear.
