Alex Kapranos, lead singer of Scottish rock group Franz Ferdinand and unexpected food writer, recently took to the Twitters to express his outrage over the usage of the band's music on a McDonald's website (which has since been removed). While Kapranos' frustration seems to be more directly pointed at his American label, Sony, for licensing the music without the band's consent, he is also worried this will mess up his planned deal with White Castle, a chain he seems to adore: "I was going to get a lifetime supply of those cute (much tastier than McD) burgers and they were going to open a Dennistoun franchise."
