The Rolling Stones Issue SCATHING Rebuke To Donald Trump For Stealing Their Music (DETAILS)


Donald Trump’s campaign ended with a long, dark, fear-mongering speech and a song, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by the Rolling Stones. It was an odd message, ending a long primary campaign with a song that says:

‘You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you might find
You get what you need.’

Proving how inept Trump’s campaign is, there was, reportedly, no message intended in the song. A campaign insider told TMZ that it was “just a song on the playlist.” Did no one listen to it and think that people may interpret the message in that song as saying that evangelical Christian conservatives didn’t get the candidate they wanted in Donald Trump, but he’ll tell them he’s the one they need?

It seems, however, that the actual artists who wrote the song, the Rolling Stones, don’t want anything to do with Donald Trump and his messages to his voters.

This is not the first time Donald Trump has used an artist’s song despite their desire to keep their distance from his racist, xenophobic, and misogynistic campaign. On night one of the Republican National Convention, Trump entered the stage like a WWE fighter to “We Are the Champions” by another iconic band, Queen. Considering that the man who originally recorded and performed that song for many years was an LGBT icon and the RNC included the most homophobic platform in history, many people were upset by Trump’s use of the song.

After Trump used her songs “Skyfall” and “Rolling in the Deep” at his political rallies, which consisted of Trump spewing hateful rhetoric and his supporters growing violent with protesters, Adele made sure her fans knew she didn’t support Trump’s message, either.

‘ “Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,” an Adele spokesperson said in a statement to CNN.’

Perhaps Trump should stick to artists who enjoy his messages. We’re sure Hank, Jr. and Ted Nugent would be happy to become relevant again.
