A Rush Limbaugh Playlist: What Else Could Upset Artists Like Peter Gabriel?

There are a lot of people upset with Rush Limbaugh.

If you've heard what Limbaugh had to say about Georgetown student Sandra Fluke, then you can guess which parties are upset with him. Even a professional troll faces repercussions for calling a 30 year old college student "a slut".

It's not surprising that women's rights groups would be angered by what he said. It's not surprising that advertisers have started to jump ship. It's not even particularly surprising that President Obama called Fluke to encourage her to keep speaking up for the causes she believes in.

It was a bit surprising when Peter Gabriel got involved.
