Stones to Trump: Stop Playing Our Songs

stones-2016The Rolling Stones have joined the chorus of musicians protesting Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s use of their music at his rallies.

The Daily Beast reports Trump has been playing three Stones classics — “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” and “Brown Sugar.” A spokesman for the group told the website that no one asked the Stones for permission to use the songs and the band hasn’t approved it.

Guitarist Keith Richards told Billboard last year, “Can you imagine President Trump? The worst nightmare. But we can’t say that. Because it could happen.”

The Stones join several other musicians accusing the Trump campaign of using their music without permission, including Adele, Neil Young, REM, and Aerosmith.
