Jon Bon Jovi doesn’t want GOP using his song
Add Bon Jovi to the growing list of famous bands irked that the McCain-Palin campaign is using their songs at events.
Jon Bon Jovi, who gave a $30,000 plate dinner for Barack Obama in his own home, issued a statement about his song “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” being played at McCain-Palin rallies:
“We are surprised to hear that our song, “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” was used by the McCain campaign at rallies yesterday and today. We wrote this song as a thank you to those who have supported us over the past twenty-five years. The song has since become a banner for our home state of New Jersey and the defacto theme song for our partnerships around the country to build homes and rebuild communities. Although we were not asked, we do not approve of their use of ‘Home.’”
So now Heart, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi, John Mellencamp and Jackson Browne have balked over the GOP playing their music.
