(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - The Fabulous Thunderbirds want no part of Rush Limbaugh's radio show.

Singer Kim Wilson says the band has demanded Limbaugh stop using its song "Tuff Enuff" and other T-birds music on his show.

The move is in response to Limbaugh calling Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" when she testified before Congress about contraception.

Wilson says he was "mortified by his (Limbaugh's)   attack on this young woman." He says, "There is no amount of money this guy could pay me to be a part of his cruel rhetoric."

Peter Gabriel has also demanded Limbaugh stop using his music following his comments about Fluke. Limbaugh, who lost advertisers over the remarks, has since apologized to her.
