Rolling Stones Ask Donald Trump to Stop Using Their Music




“The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately,” a spokesperson for the legendary British band told TIME Wednesday.


And not sure what to make of this:


Trump has been known to play at least two other songs by the Rolling Stones at his rallies:
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want,”
“Sympathy for the Devil” and “Brown Sugar.”

A campaign volunteer told the New Yorker in February that Trump personally curated the playlist,

which also includes Elton John and music from “Cats” and “The Phantom of the Opera.”

Those selections are telling. Phantom of the Opera? Sympathy for the Devil?

"I rode a tank held a Generals rank, when the Blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank.

Woo hoo…"

And I have to admit that it is strange that he hand-picked this song for when he takes the stage?

"Sympathy For The Devil"

A lot to read into that if you chose too.. "Im a man of wealth and taste" kinda obvious,
"I shouted out who killed the Kennedy's" a nod to his pandering to conspiracy theories ...just this week accusing Ted Cruz's father of that precise crime.
"But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game"
That's what everyone has been asking for a year now.

Kind of odd if not freaky...I admit.

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith
And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank
Held a general's rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made

I shouted out,
"Who killed the Kennedys?"
When after all
It was you and me

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
Cause I'm in need of some restraint
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down

Didn't know Trump had good taste in music. Now I like him even more.

Too bad the Rolling Stones don't feel the same about him.

As far as your growing admiration...I am pretty sure Trump could fart directly into the Microphone at his next rally and his followers would love him more.

Hell, I support him. Plus I love seeing the rage at the idea that someone could support him so I sport it.

I think he showed in his speech that he did indeed have sympathy for Ted.

is it so hard for politicians to ask permission ?

with both parties, this comes up all the time, and it usually pretty embarrassing for the pol, its a big rejection

Sympathy for the devil is a good song, everyone likes the beat, who takes it as a swan song? Who wants to identify with the top of the world and the devil at the same time…

Frankly it depends on the Politician..

Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop" was Bill Clintons campaign theme song and they ended up playing at his Inaugural party.

Not to be partisan, but keeping it real...as far as I am aware these issues come up with GOP candidates almost exclusively...if not exclusively.

Weren't there some crazy people that were calling Obama Satan too - by playing back his 'Yes We Can' statements in reverse. I remember it, it was hilarious. These people were actually serious. I think it happens every time a man rises to power.

I'm actually surprised he hasn't done that yet. It certainly seems like the kind of thing that would appeal to he's main supporter base... given there ability to grasp an intellectual thought process.

It also depends on the musician. I imagine Trump could play ANY Kid Rock tune and Kid Rock would love it.

Yes Kid Rock played/performed for Mitt Romney's campaign...But I doubt Mitt Romney had ever heard a Kid Rock song before that


Also Ted Nuggent...

But as far as Musicians stepping in and telling campaigns to stop using there Music, that has only occurred with GOP candidates as far as I am aware.

Yah...I am hesitant to go there...Ever listen to the actual lyrics on that one?

It opens with..

Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in a market down in New Orleans
Scarred old slaver knows he's doing alright
Hear him whip the women just around midnight

It's all okay because he posed with a taco salad and said he loves Hispanics today.

Holy crap! I thought you were kidding and then actually googled it just in case!

Holy hell...What is next? Him tweeting a pic of himself eating watermelon "I love the blacks!"
