Star is annoyed with use of song

Jon Bon

Polymer rocker Jon Bon Jovi has blasted Republican thicky and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin over her use of one of his songs during her campaign.

Bon Jovi issued a statement criticising the Republican party for using the song 'Who Says You Can't Go Home' at Palin's rallies.

"We wrote this song as a thank you to those who have supported us over the past 25 years," the statement read. "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'."

Look! Sarah Palin (possibly) works on relations across the Bering Straits in forthcoming documentary flick, Who's Nailin' Palin?
