If you ask us Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would be the last person to inspire a dance-floor anthem.

After all, his biggest claim to fame so far as hopefuls vie for the GOP nomination is being a steady rocking, under-the-radar, cardboard cutout candidate who will probably get the nod by way of not making a gaffe and/or by failing to shake things up.

No, we'd much rather hear tunes inspired by Herman Cain (who seems to repeatedly bring the pain) or the foot-in-mouth master Rick Perry. And surely Michele Bachmann has inspired a love song or two, what with those big, hungry eyes.

But, no, Romney, strangely enough, is the inspiration for a jam by LMFAO, the L.A.-based kings of the club hit (see "Party Rock Anthem").

"We Came to Party" (as in "we didn't come here to fight") is based on the duo's near-violent (or not) run-in with Romney on a flight from Vancouver to L.A. last year, the band admitted recently.

The pair accused Romney of putting a "condor grip" on LMFAO's Sky Blu after he failed to put his seat up per the ex-governor's request.
