I don't understand what the copyright holder hopes to accomplish by withdrawing rights to the song... it's not like the song can be used in ANY other occasion.

I'd probably have tried to come to some sort of agreement to let the pageant continue using it, if only to guarantee income to my heirs.

kev_dog: Couldn't the Miss America pageant sue the songwriter for using their (what I assume is) trademarked name in the song?  Or is miss america just a generic phrase that can have a broader interpretation beyond the pageant?

Did Styx have to pay for their use of the term in Miss America?

Speaking of which, why not use that song? The sarcasm will appeal to ironic hipsters.
