The Rolling Stones have issued a stern warning to Donald Trump telling him not to use their songs during his presidential campaign.
The Legendary British band released a strongly worded statement telling the Republican presidential nominee that he does not have permission to use the their music. “The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately”
Russia Today reports:
For months, Trump has featured numerous songs from the group including the 1969 hit, You Can’t Always Get What You Want.
The Rolling Stones are not the first musicians to tell Trump to stop using their songs during campaign events.
Both Adele and Steve Tyler of Aerosmith have made similar requests.
In February, a spokesperson for Adele said the artist had not given permission for her songs to be “used for any political campaigning.”
Michael Stipe from American band REM, however, had stronger words for Trump when the group’s song It’s the End of the World as We Know It was used.
“Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign,” a statement issued by Stipe said.
Looks like Trump ‘can’t get no satisfaction’…
Neil Young has also demanded that Trump stop using his song Rockin’ in the Free World, which the Donald had used when he announced his candidacy in June last year.
Young demanded that Trump stop using his song and declared his support for Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.
