Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy became the highest-profile voice to take a stand when he tweeted Tuesday, "I like Fight Song ALOT. @HillaryClinton should keep it. But I also listened to the first @NickLachey solo album on repeat. So there's that."
Murphy was answering a question that roiled the campaign coverage world on Tuesday, following the publication of a story on Yahoo! News
titled, "Hillary Clinton's 'Fight Song' is driving some people nuts."
The hit by songwriter Rachel Platten has become an inescapable feature of Clinton's campaign rallies, regularly pumped through loud speakers at each stop. An a cappella version of the song, featuring cameos by celebrities and singers, was even premiered at the Democratic National Convention.
Murphy proceeded to triple down on his "Fight Song" take, responding to a reporter who praised his citation of Lachey's solo album "What's Left of Me" as proof of his music cred, or the lack thereof.
"@ChrisMurphyCT What's Left of Me was a revelation tbh," wrote Leigh Munsil, a political editor at The Blaze.
Murphy joked back, "Everyone knows this but is just too scared to admit it. Thank you for your courage, Leigh."
And Murphy appeared to slip in a dig at the Republican presidential nominee, borrowing one of Donald Trump's favorite phrases to respond to a Twitter critic who corrected his grammar.
"The worst part of this tweet is that he misspelled 'a lot' ," wrote Emily Cahn, a writer at Mic.com
"Many people are saying that alot is one word," Murphy cracked back.
