Axl Rose Goes After President Trump for Using his Music


Axl Rose isn’t one to mince words, so when President Donald Trump decided to use the Guns N’ Roses classic “Sweet Child o’ Mine” at a rally in West Virginia Friday, not long after, the band “formally requested” he stop using their music, and frontman Axl posted his thoughts about the use of the band’s music in a series of tweets.

Rose tweeted Sunday morning: “Just so ya know… GNR like a lot of artists opposed to the unauthorized use of their music at political events has formally requested r music not b used at Trump rallies or Trump associated events,” adding: “Unfortunately the Trump campaign is using loopholes in the various venues’ blanket performance licenses which were not intended for such craven political purposes, without the songwriters’ consent,” ending with: “Can u say ‘shitbags?!’
