You can count the Rolling Stones among those unimpressed by Trump’s rally last week in Tulsa, Okla., though their rationale has nothing to do with the coronavirus.

As the BBC reports, the British band is threatening the American president with legal action for playing their song at his rallies despite previous cease-and-desist notices.

The song in question? You Can’t Always Get What You Want, which Trump also played on the 2016 campaign trail, prompting the band to tweet at one point, “The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump.”

The band is working with BMI to take “further steps to exclude” Trump from using their material. Tom Petty’s estate issued a cease-and-desist order after “I Won’t Back Down” was played at the Tulsa rally.

Trump has previously been told to stop using their music by the likes of REM, Neil Young, Elton John, Rihanna, Adele, Guns N Roses, the Rolling Stones, Pharrell, Queen, Prince, Aerosmith, and Earth Wind and Fire.

    Yeah, you go Stones. Trump should be using things like “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” or “The Spider Went Up The Water Spout”.

    The obvious song Trump should use for his rallies is by rap artist, Sir Mix-a-Lot.

    “I Like Big Butts And I Cannot Lie.”

    Both he and the majority of his audience can identify strongly with the lyrics.
