Guns n Roses slams Trump for using its music

Rihanna Glad to Learn Trump Plays Her Music At His Rallies, So She Can Shut That Down Immediately

Trump was slammed for using the music of Black musicians at his rallies where he often spreads hateful and racist rhetoric.

Rihanna isn't the first popular singer to spurn her work's use at a Trump event.

During the 2016 election numerous bands and artists, including Adele, the Rolling Stones and Elton John, requested the Trump campaign stop using their material. Prince's estate has asked for the late icon's "Purple Rain" to not be played at rallies, while more recently, Pharrell Williams" "Happy' was played at a rally hours after the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

The Barbadian artist's attention was drawn to a tweet by the Washington Post's White House beureau chief Philip Rucker, who wrote: "Trump's rallies are unlike anything else in politics".

"Just so ya know".

Last week, Pharrell Williams sent a cease-and-desist notice to Trump after his popular track "Happy" was played at the United States president's political rally, the same day of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.

Some lawyers have argued that there may be other legal routes that could be used to try to block politicians from using music without specific permission, even where a venue has its BMI and ASCAP licences.

Referencing the claim that her music was being played at Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign rallies she insisted: "Not for much longer".

On Monday night, Rihanna's legal team served the Trump campaign with a cease and desist. Trump has used the Aerosmith songs "Dream On" and "Livin' on the Edge" in his rallies.

He made his political perspective clear earlier in the week by tweeting, "Vote Blue..."

Yesterday, Nov. 4, Rose took to Twitter to go on a series of rants about the use of GNR's song being played.

They wrote, "This specifically violates Section 43 of the Lanham Act, as it 'is likely to cause confusion, or to cause mistake, or to deceive as to the affiliation, connection, or association of such person with another person'".
