Add Jon Bon Jovi to the ever-growing list of artists who have been rankled by Republicans using their songs at rallies. This time, the offender is Sarah Palin, who has been using Bon Jovi's 2006 hit "Who Says You Can't Go Home." Frontman Bon Jovi has made his political alliance abundantly clear, having hosted a $30,000-per-person fundraiser for Barack Obama at his New Jersey home. "We wrote this song as a thank you to those who have supported us over the past 25 years," Bon Jovi said. "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.'" The McCain campaign maintains that they have made the necessary clearances for use of songs by Foo Fighters, Heart and others, but this is getting ridiculous.
