Donald Trump receives cease and desist from The Rolling Stones after playing their music

on May 05, 2016, 12:28am

Despite being the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump is having a difficult time finding a song to soundtrack his campaign. Over the past few months, Mr. Drumpf has used songs by Adele, R.E.M., and Neil Young, only to receive cease and desist notices from each artist. With Woody Guthrie’s music also out of the equation, Trump chose to soundtrack Tuesday night’s victory speech with Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Start Me Up”.

Given that Keith Richards once pulled a knife on Trump, it’s hardly a surprise to learn the Stones have already issued their own cease and desist against the presidential candidate. According to a statement obtained by CBS, the band has not given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and “have requested that they cease all use immediately.”

At least Trump still has the USA Freedom Girls…
