"Bon Jovi objects to McCain-Palin campaign using his songs."

bon-jovi.jpgJon Bon Jovi issued a statement to TMZ today objecting to Gov. Sarah Palin’s (R-AK) use of his song “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” during her 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. Although we were not asked, we do not approve of their use of ‘Home.’

The band joins John Mellencamp, Heart, Jackson Browne, the Foo Fighters, Van Halen and others in objecting to the use of their music by the McCain campaign. Ironically, today the McCain campaign faulted YouTube for taking down some of its videos — without acknowledging that some of those videos faced DMCA take-down notices. (HT: Huffington Post)
