Heartland rocker John Mellencamp has a special message to Republican front-runner John McCain this Super Tuesday: Stop playing my songs!
According to Rolling Stone
, the GOP presidential candidate has been blasting Mellencamp's crowd-pleasing anthems "Our Country" and "Pink Houses" during recent campaign stops.
But Mellencamp is a die hard Democrat, who had pledged his support to blue-collar favorite John Edwards's now derailed presidential bid.
Although the singer – a 2008 inductee
to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – has not commented publicly, the music mag reports that his reps have quietly asked McCain to stop using the music.
A campaign spokesperson did not immediately respond to request for comment.
