BBC NEWS: Burn, burn burn:

The family of late singer Johnny Cash has blocked an attempt by advertisers to use his hit song Ring of Fire to promote haemorrhoid-relief products.
The idea had been backed by Merle Kilgore, who co-wrote the song with Cash's wife, June Carter Cash.

Cash's daughter Rosanne said the family "would never allow the song to be demeaned like that".
