Bon Jovi tackles McCain campaign for using his song

Philadelphia Soul co-owner Jon Bon Jovi tells TMZ he is "surprised to hear that our song, "Who Says You can't Go Home" was used by the McCain campaign at rallies yesterday and today." Bon Jovi, who has hosted a fundraiser at his home for Barack Obama and who was in town Friday to perform at a private Obama fundraiser in Mount Airy, told the site "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." Bon Jovi says the band hasn't formally asked the McCain campaign to stop using the song, but "we do not approve of their use of 'Home.'" John Mellencamp, Heart and the Foo Fighters have also complained about their songs being played at McCain campaign events
