You Can't Always Get What You Want, Trump

The Rolling Stones have told US presidential hopeful Donald Trump to stop using their songs at his campaign rallies.

The brash billionaire is an avid music fan and The Stones' 1969 hit You Can't Always Get What You Want was a particular favourite in a soundtrack that included Sir Elton John, opera and classic rock songs.

In a statement, the band said: "The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately."

They are not the first musicians to distance the controversial tycoon and reality television star from their music.

In February, a spokesman for Adele said: "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning."

The words were in response to reports that Mr Trump, who is a fan of the British singer and attended one of her New York concerts, had been playing Rolling In The Deep to fire-up his supporters.

Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler asked him to stop playing Dream On during campaigning, a request that prompted a backlash from Mr Trump, who tweeted that he had a legal right to use the song but had found "a better one to take its place".

He added: "Steven Tyler got more publicity on his song request than he's gotten in 10 years. Good for him!"

Neil Young also objected when Mr Trump used Rockin' In The Free World during the announcement of his campaign last year.
