American rockers Bon Jovi's song donation to New Jersey tourism officials has stalled, because the band's publishers is demanding $175,000 (GBP97,000) for the rights.

Frontman Jon Bon Jovi and guitarist Richie Sambora gave the tourism board permission to use their new single WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T GO HOME in a new TV advertisement for the US' Garden State.

However, the song's publisher is demanding a fee for the song, meaning New Jersey may not be able to afford to use the track.

A source close to the band tells the New York Daily News, "That's not a lot of money. Coke pays millions to use a song in a commercial. People should get paid for what they write. Jon and Richie are good Jersey boys. They've done so much charitable work for the state."
