LOS ANGELES - John Mellencamp says he has nothing to do with a new film called "Jack and Diane."
The film, staring Juno Temple and Riley Keough in a coming-of-age love story, is running as video-on-demand.
Mellencamp said his song does not appear in the movie, nor did he have anything to do with the title.
Mellencamp said it's apparent the characters "were named with the hope that the familiar title might resonate in some people's minds."
He said that's probably OK from a legal standpoint "but riding on someone else's coattails and having a moral compass is left up to each individual."
