    The Horrors Are Appalled That Labour Used One Of Their Songs Before Ed Miliband Came On Stage

    Labour played a number of songs before the leader of the party gave the keynote speech at its annual conference. The Horrors aren't very happy that one of theirs was included.

    Ed Miliband just appeared at the Labour party conference to lay out some of his policies for the upcoming general election. While the audience was waiting in the conference room, they were played a bunch of songs.

    Including this overplayed song by Pharrell.

    In fact, this was the band's response.

    And The Horrors keep tweeting about it.

    They're really not happy.

    And FYI, they're not Labour supporters.

    Tom Cowan, keyboardist and synthesiser player for the band, later contacted BuzzFeed News to say he was the member tweeting from the band's account.
