Superflous G

Some words bother me. Specifically, the way some words are spelled. Today, I was typing out the word 'campaign.' I know how to spell it. But I just really didn't want to put that G in there. It has no purpose. It has no business in the word, and is completely worthless. What is the rule for putting a G before an N? It's a little too common, really. Why is it even allowed if it doesn't actually add anything. Or are we all mispronouncing these words?

Are you sure that's not the name of a rapper?
