The Rolling Stones have spoken, joining Paul Rodgers and Free, and George Harrison’s heirs, and Queen, and just about every rock group whose song has been used by Donald Trump in his campaign.
Last night at the end of the convention, the RNC blared the Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” over the loudspeaker in Quicken Loans Arena (what name!). You know, I thought Trump chose it, but that doesn’t make sense. The title sounds more like something from the RNC itself to the delegates who didn’t want Trump.
Anyway, it was just another violation of copyright.
The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump. You Can't Always Get What You Want was used without the band's permission.
