I had to laugh at Sarkozy offerng them one euro.

MGMT are suing French President Nicolas Sarkozy, accusing him of using their hit "Kids" in online videos without permission.

Sarkozy has admitted using the song at the UMP party's national congress, but claims the lack of permission was a mistake and offered the band one euro as a gesture, reports BBC News.

The duo rejected the offer and are now seeking compensation. Their lawyer, Isabelle Wekstein, said a fee of 53 Euros ($90) that had initially been paid to gain use of the song was not enough.
