McCain Trolls for "UnManly" Campaign Theme Songs

Red State:

From the "you gotta be freakin' kidding me" files:

[McCain], who had already been banned by John Mellencamp, the American rocker, from using his hits 'Our Country' and 'Pink Houses', found out that he has few fans in Scandinavia when he tried to adopt Abba's "Take a chance on me" as his campaign song. After running into difficulties with the Swedish supergroup, McCain lamented to reporters on board his plane that it wasn't as easy to play the song as he thought.

WTH? Who in the heck is advising McCain? Is there anything less manly than this?:

As Robin Marti noted, at least it wasn't the Dancing Queen.

If they really want a Manly Man song, why not this?

Or this?
