Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Demands Donald Trump Stop Using ‘Dream On’

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler would like Donald Trump to stop using his band’s music in the Republican candidate’s presidential campaign. Trump has been playing the power ballad “Dream On” at campaign rallies for months and Tyler has had enough.

Saturday’s cease and desist letter is the second time Tyler has asked Trump to stop using his music. He was originally notified in August but has continued to use “Dream On” since then, including in Atlanta this weekend, according to Rolling Stone.

Steven Tyler believes that the use of his song will cause people to believe that he is connected to Donald Trump’s campaign.

Trump for President does not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On’ or any of our client’s other music in connection with the Campaign because it gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid.

Tyler goes on to threaten legal action if Trump does not comply within 24 hours.

If Trump for President does not comply with our demands, our client will be forced to pursue any and all legal or equitable remedies which our client may have against you.

There is a history between Aerosmith and Donald Trump that may further complicate the situation. At a concert last year, Trump used Twitter to post that it “doesn’t get any better than that.”

Tyler was a personal guest of Trump’s at the Republican debate in August. Tyler also judged at Trump’s Miss USA pageant and the two travelled to Russia together, reports Billboard.

Regardless of past friendship, it seems Tyler is not happy to be associated with Trump’s presidential bid.

Tyler has company as the band R.E.M. has also asked Trump to not use their song, “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine).” Bassist Mike Mills made his feelings known with some harsh words for Trump.

Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.

Neil Young also opposed Trump’s use of his song, “Rockin’ in the Free World.” After a statement by Young, Trump stopped using the song and Democrat Bernie Sanders started using it in his presidential campaign.

Donald Trump was not authorized to use ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ in his presidential candidacy announcement. Neil Young, a Canadian citizen, is a supporter of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America.

It’s not only musicians who have negative feelings toward Trump. President Barack Obama also had a few words to the man attempting to be the next to move into the White House.
