Cease and Desist Friday

At least according to my sources candidates have been sent cease and desist orders by musicians for playing their music in this election cycle, here are the songs and the stories behind them.

Hillary Clinton sent a cease and desist order by Tobi Vail of Bikini Kill for using the song Rebel Girl. Hillary Clinton... Rebel Girl, uh yeah, right.

But Trump seems to be the king of cease and desist orders:  To Donald Trump "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,"

Along with Skyfall, the theme from the James Bond movie

Add in Steven Tyler's of Aerosmith's objection to Trump's use of Dream On:

And his use of:

Quote: "Neil Young, a Canadian citizen, is a supporter of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America".  Neil Young then offered Bernie Sanders use of the song which he readily picked up.

Not to be left out, Marco Rubio was sent a cease and desist order from Axwell for his use of Something New.
