Classic rocker upset with Walker

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Liberal rocker John Mellencamp wants conservative Republican Governor Scott Walker to think about supporting union rights before using his songs on the campaign trail.  

During Walker's re-election campaign launch Tuesday, Mellencamp's "Pink Houses" was playing in the background.  Back in 2012, during a recall campaign, "Small Town" played. 

The rocker's publicist says Mellencamp is not asking Walker to stop playing his songs, but wants the governor to know he supports unions and collective bargaining.
