Bon Jovi is angry at Sarah Palin for using their “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” song at her rallies.
The rock band joined the list of musicians, which includes Heart, Jackson Browne, the Foo Fighters and Van Halen, that are angry that their songs were being used at John McCain-Sarah Palin events. It appeared that these musicians were annoyed with the political process especially the unauthorized use of their songs by campaigns they don’t even support.
According to the report, Sarah Palin, who is the controversial Republican vice presidential candidate, has been using the track during her political rallies, despite the fact that Bon Jovi did not want her to use the song.
The band released this statement: “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 statement also indicated: “The song has since become a banner for our home state of New Jersey and the de facto 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.'”
Jon Bon Jovi threw a dinner at his home for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama — $30,800 a plate.
