Rolling Stones forbid Donald Trump from using their music for his presidential campaign.
The Rolling Stones have put their foot down. They will not allow Donald Trump to play their songs at his rallies. Mick Jagger and his merry men just “can’t get no satisfaction” from Trump using their branded music for his personal gain.

The Rolling Stones warned Trump that their songs should not enter his campaign rallies since his cause was not what they espoused in the first place. Trump is an audiophile and has been playing their songs along with other soundtracks from Elton John and various genres at his gatherings.
“The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately,” a spokesperson for Rolling Stones told TIME.
Representatives from Trump’s side have not commented on the situation just yet. The Rolling Stones are not the only ones to shun Trump due to his obnoxious and rude political tactics.
Aerosmith and Adele have also jumped on the “Dump Trump” bandwagon. Both requested Trump to desist from using their lyrics and sound bytes in his political circus acts. Even an old veteran like Neil Young asked Trump to cease the practice of using his song “Rocking in the Free World”.
Although most political rallies do not need explicit permission from musicos to use their songs, many times the musicians do have recourse to special bylaws to prevent their songs from being played at the rallies.
