Buckwheat Zydeco, the Lafayette-born Zydeco legend who's gained national and international fame, is not pleased that his music was played at Gov. Bobby Jindal's presidential announcement event.

Buckwheat's music was among several songs that played at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner before Jindal and his supporters took the stage, Gambit Weekly reported while live tweeting the event.

The zydeco musician replied to Gambit on his own Twitter page and said that Bobby Jindal using the music of Buckwheat and his band is "not cool at all."

He had much kinder words for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who strutted on stage to launch his presidential bid with Buckwheat's "Make A Change" playing in the background.

He said Sanders' use of the song was "tres bien."
