Singer Peter Gabriel has joined the growing number of Rush Limbaugh dissenters, asking that his highly recognizable hit 'Sledgehammer' not be used in Limbaugh's nationally syndicated radio show.

Last week, Limbaugh made inflammatory comments on his show about law student/activist Sandra Fluke. As a result he has lost at least a dozen advertisers, and is apparently looking for some new background music - despite making a public apology over the weekend.

Gabriel had this message posted on his website:

Peter Gabriel has asked that this response be published when he found out that his track 'Sledgehammer' has been used on the Rush Limbaugh show:

'Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh's extraordinary attack on Sandra Fluke. It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter's work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair aggressive and ignorant comments.'
