Artists Tell Politicians To Stop Using Their Songs
In case you missed it, on Sunday’s edition of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” the host discussed Donald Trump’s unauthorized use of songs by Queen and the Rolling Stones at the RNC and then shared with a song that expresses just how upset artists are getting.
The tune, “Don’t Use Our Song,” featured a whole host of musicians including Usher, Cyndi Lauper, Heart, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, Sheryl Crow and Josh Groban, with the chorus driving home their message:
“Don’t use our song because it used it wrong / It might seem appealing but you’re just stealing,” they sing. “Don’t just use our song it just seems wrong / By the time this tune is through you’ll be lucky if we don’t sue.”
