Rolling Stones Take Action to Prevent Trump From Using Song

The Rolling Stones have threatened to take legal action against Trump over the use of their songs at his campaign rallies

THE ROLLING STONES' 1969 iconic classic "You Can't Always Get What You Want" - a popular song at TRUMP's events, was played again at the close of TRUMP's recent rally in TULSA.

At the beginning of this month, the family of rock musician Tom Petty, at a rally on June 20, asked Trump to stop issuing a letter on the use of his song, I Watts Back Down.

The famous United Kingdom rock band The Rolling Stones has warned US President Donald Trump's campaign to stop playing its songs, namely "You Can't Always Get What You Want", during the rallies.

The Rolling Stones are threatening legal action against President Donald Trump's campaign for using their music at his campaign rallies.

No serious or talented musician wants their music played at President Donald Trump's rallies, which recently in Tulsa, had a lot of empty seats. Rihanna, Tom Petty's estate, and of all people, Trump's favorite musician, Neil Young, requested their music not be played at a Trump rally.


"The Stones' legal team [is] working with BMI".

Tori be say di BMi don follow det warn di Trump campaign to stop to dey use dia music without permission say dem fit carr di campaing go court. The rocker's family released a statement saying they had issued a cease-and-desist, commenting, "Trump was in no way authorized to use this song to further a campaign that leaves too many Americans and common sense behind". Politicians usually try to use a loophole, putting the blame on the venue and not themselves.

Trump also used their songs during his 2016 campaign, and it prompted the band to complain.

"The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump", The Stones, which includes musicians like Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, had tweeted from their official Twitter account in 2016.

"BMI's Political Entities License was implemented about ten years ago to cover political campaigns", the spokesperson added while informing that Trump does hold the political entities' license but even that can be challenged.
