John Mellencamp Tells NOM: Stop Using My Song - I Support Gay Marriage
It is obvious to all of us that the so-called National Organization for Marriage doesn't receive permission for use of the music they play at their public rallies. If they had asked permission, they would know that the artists whose works they're co-opting want nothing to do with NOM and their bigoted anti-equality campaigns.

I'm sure you remember the cease and desist letter sent to NOM President Brian Brown in response to the organizationís use of the Peter, Paul & Mary recording of Woody Guthrieís "This Land Is Your Land" at their rally in Albany, NY. Well, John Mellencamp isn't happy about NOM's use of his music, either. I heard NOM playing Mellencampís "Pink Houses" during their rally in Madison, WI, as this video shows:

A contact with John Mellencampís publicist confirmed my suspicion. Not only had NOM not received permission to use the recording, but John Mellencamp does not want his music associated with NOM. In fact, John Mellencamp stands solidly with us Ė on the side of equal rights. Thank you, Mr. Mellencamp, for your support!
