Over the weekend at a campaign rally in Tulsa, OK, Donald Trump used Tom Petty's music without consent, and the family of the late singer/songwriter expressed their feelings in an official statement.

 

 

This is not the first time Donald Trump has been called out for unauthorized use of music - Ozzy Osbourne, R.E.M., Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith, Queen and Elton John are just a few of the bands who have asked him not to. 

 

Happy Rocking (from a safe social distance),
