Trump's team had previously said they would stop playing Young's songs
Neil Young has spoken out against Donald Trump once again after the US President has continued to air his music at rallies without permission.
In 2015, Trump played Young’s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’ at rallies during his presidential campaign. The musician asked him to cease doing so and his team agreed, saying: “We will respect [Young’s] wish and not use it because it’s the right thing to do.”
Young is not the only musician to demand Trump stop using their music at his campaign events lately. Rihanna sent the President a cease and desist letter when he used ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ at a rally, while Axl Rose, Pharrell Williams, Steven Tyler, and Prince’s estate have also said he does not have their permission to play their songs.
Rose suggested Trump’s team were using “loopholes” to play artists’ music at rallies without their consent.
