The Rolling Stones join artists complaining Donald Trump didn't ask for permission to play their music

Adele, Neil Young and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler are among the artists who have previously complained Donald Trump didn't ask permission to use their music

The Rolling Stones are the latest artists to say Donald Trump never asked their permission to play their songs at his campaign rallies.

Adele, Neil Young and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler are among the artists who have previously complained the Republican Presidential candidate hopeful did not ask permission to play their music. 

Mr Trump has been playing three of the Rolling Stones' hits at his rallies: You Can't Always Get What You Want, Sympathy for the Devil and Brown Sugar. 

“The band was not asked for permission to use the songs,” a spokeswoman for the band told The Daily Beast.

It seems the band are not fans of "the Donald".

"Can you imagine President Trump? The worst nigtmare," guitarist Keith Richards told Billboard last year.

“But we can’t say that," he added. "Because it could happen. This is one of the wonders of this country. Who would’ve thought Ronald Reagan could be president?”

Mick Jagger is also no fan of the Republican Party, having performed an original blues song critical of Mitt Romney on Saturday Night Live in 2012.

Before he speaks at rallies, Donald Trump plays a 50 minute playlist of songs he has compiled himself. 

It features music from the musicals Cats and The Phantom of the Opera, as well as songs by The Beatles, Elton John and Twisted Sister.
