As one of the more polarising figures of the western world, presidential hopeful Donald Trump has come under fire for - amongst other things - promising to build a big wall, threatening to ban Muslims from the USA and using iconic music for his campaign without the artists' permission.
These are the current musicians who have spoken out against the great toupee for hijacking their hits.
Trump tried to use 'Rolling In The Deep' at a rally, to which a spokesperson responded, "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning."
The band's frontman Dee Snider said: "When Donald started running for office, he asked me, he called me. He says, 'Can I use the song?' And he's a buddy. And I said, 'Yeah. Go ahead.' But as the months went on, I heard a litany of his beliefs that I'd never discussed with him. I finally called him and I said, 'Man, you've gotta stop using the song. People think I'm endorsing you here. I can't get behind a lot of what you're saying.' And that night. He has not used it since."
The Rolling Stones
Took to Twitter to protest Trump's use of 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' during an RNC convention.
"Personally, I think the Orange Clown will do anything for attention. I hate giving it to him," Mike Mills wrote on Twitter.
Well, not Pavarotti himself because ...you know. But the legendary Opera singer's estate wrote an open letter asking Trump to refrain from playing 'Nessun Dorma'.
"We remind you that the values of brotherhood and solidarity that Luciano Pavarotti upheld throughout his artistic career are incompatible with the world vision of the candidate Donald Trump," the letter said.
In contrast, current POTUS Barack Obama has just released his annual Daytime and Nighttime playlists, shooting to the top of the Spotifty charts and proving once again why he's comfortably the coolest leader of the free world.
