Remember the first time you saw A Clockwork Orange? And after that disturbing scene you knew you'd never be able to hear "Singin' in the Rain" the same way again and that song was ruined for life? 

Well, you'd better prepare to mourn "Eye of the Tiger," because the Internet has officially declared that tune dead. Why?

Because it was the song played while anti-gay clerk Kim Davis walked out of a jail to a crowd of cheering supporters. Mike Huckabee was there to escort a proud Davis onstage, and she raised her arms in victory as if she just ran the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art instead of what she actually did: refused to do her job of granting couples the basic human right of marrying the person they loved.

So please join us at the Internet funeral of Survivor's classic hit single, whose gravestone shall read:

Here Lies "Eye of the Tiger"
Killed By Kim Davis When It Became an Anthem for the Anti-Gay Movement
1982 – 2015

Meanwhile, Survivor band member Frankie Sullivan is pissed that Kim Davis and Huckabee used the song without permission:

NO! We did not grant Kim Davis any rights to use "My Tune -The Eye Of The Tiger." I would not grant her the rights to...

"NO! We did not grant Kim Davis any rights to use "My Tune -The Eye Of The Tiger." I would not grant her the rights to use Charmin!" he wrote on his Facebook page. "C'mom Mike, you are not The Donald but you can do better than that. See Ya really SoooooooonnnnnnN!!!!!!"

No word yet on when the new version of Rocky with "Eye of the Tiger" edited out and replaced with Survivor's "I Can't Hold Back" will hit shelves. Can't have a dead song in such an iconic movie, now can we?!
