It pays to be one of the Republican party's favorite rock bands (unless the band hates Republicans).
Journey is getting a $500K to join Kid Rock, Zac Brown Band, Trace Adkins, and Lee Greenwood as performers at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida this week.
Tropical storm Isaac caused Lynyrd Skynrd to cancel their show on Sunday, but conservatives will still get their socks rocked off when Journey takes the stage on Thursday to tell them Don't Stop Believin' in Mitt Romney's chances to become president.
Actually, we take that back. It sounds like they just want the money and don't care if Romney and the Republicans take back the White House. A source called the band nonpartisan and explained:
"It's an RNC event, but not one to endorse any candidate or party. I believe Journey and also Zac Brown [also on Thursday] are described as nonpartisan but they aren't aware of any of the details themselves. To Journey, it's simple, one of hundreds of private [events] they get hired to do."
Considering the race between Barack Obama and his challenger is so close, we doubt the Republicans will stop believin' in their party's chances of winning any way.
