It’s All Over Now: The Rolling Stones Want Trump to Stop Playing Their Songs

jaggerDonald Trump has recently been taking to playing the Rolling Stones song “Start Me Up” at campaign events, and the group would very much like for it to fade away.

The iconic band provided a statement today that said, according to Time, “The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately.”

The Stones are not the first musicians who have requested Trump stop using their songs at his events––Steven Tyler objected to Trump playing “Dream On,” Adele said Trump doesn’t have permission to play her songs, and Neil Young took issue with Trump using “Rockin’ in the Free World” at his 2016 announcement.

Now, it’s pretty clear the Stones aren’t fans of Trump’s. Mick Jagger joked about his great wall and Keith Richards said that while Trump would be “refreshing,” the thought of President Trump would be “the worst nightmare.”

In Trump’s defense, though, not only is “Start Me Up” a pretty good energy-boosting song, but after he kicked Ted Cruz out of the race last night, he most definitely made a grown man cry…
