Newt Gingrich is facing legal trouble in Illinois regarding his song choice.  TMZ.com reports the Republican presidential hopeful is being sued in an Illinois Federal Court by Rude Music, Inc., which owns the rights to Survivor's 1982 hit "Eye of the Tiger."  The company is owned by a member of the rock band, and they claim Newt has been using the song without permission at various political events dating back to 2009.  The lawsuit, filed on Monday, marks the second time this week Gingrich has been accused of illegally using songs to soundtrack his campaign events.  Third Side Music recently sent a cease and desist letter to the Gingrich camp asking them to stop using the Heavy's track "How You Like Me Now."
