5 Artists That Want Trump to Stop Playing Their Music

Half way through Trump's reign as president, it is not a surprise that there are a lot of people who do not like Trump, including celebrities. Many musicians have spoken up about Trump's use of their music at political rallies and events, often to say - don't use it!


The most recent celebrity to speak out about Trump's use of her music. Rihanna made her anger towards Trump known on twitter, after it was made known to her that Trump was using "Don't Stop the Music" to hype of crowds during his political rallies, stating: "Not for much nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies". Following her public response, Rihanna has sent a cease and desist letter, one of many received by The President lately, banning Trump from using her music at political rallies and events.

The Rolling Stones

Trump's favorite genre to play at many of his rallies are classic rock bands, but many of these bands, like the Rolling Stones, do not appreciate their music being used to promote a cause they do not believe in. The Rolling Stones have released the following statement: "The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately".


Again, President Donald Trump took it upon himself to use Queen's "We are the Champions" at many political rallies in 2016. However, Trump failed to obtain the proper license, and when Queen found out, they sent him a cease and desist letter, which he promptly ignored.


Adele may be the "first" to really ban trump from using her music. During the 2016 election, even though she is unable to vote in US, UK native Adele greatly advocated for Hillary Clinton, and promptly banned Trump from using any of her music at any events.


After Trump's inappropriate use of Pharrell's song 'Happy" following the tragic events at the Pittsburgh synagogue, Pharrell follow suit with other bands, like Queen and The Rolling Stones, and released an official cease and desist letter, banning Trump from using his music at any political events.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
