Bon Jovi Upset Their Song Has Become A Republican Anthem
Rockers Bon Jovi have become the latest music act to take aim at the America's Republican party campaign marketing men over the improper use of their music.
Frontman Jon Bon Jovi has issued a statement distancing himself from wannabe Vice-President Sarah Palin after learning the Alaska Governor used his hit Who Says You Can't Go Home as an anthem at recent campaign rallies.
The singer, a fervent supporter of Palin and running mate John MCCain's Democrat opponents, rages, "We are surprised to hear that our song was used by the MCCain/Palin campaign at rallies. 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.
"We do not approve of their use of Home."
The Foo Fighters, Heart and Jackson Browne have also recently complained about the use of their songs at MCCain/Palin rallies.
In August (08) Browne sued MCCain's Republican Party for using his Running On Empty hit in a campaign ad for the Arizona Senator.
