Neil Young has filed a lawsuit against the Donald Trump 2020 campaign.
The 74-year-old musician is suing for copyright infringement after the President repeatedly used his music at official events, including “Rockin’ in the Free World” and “Devil’s Sidewalk,” AP reported Tuesday (August 4).

He said he was not suing to “disrespect the rights and opinions of American citizens, who are free to support the candidate of their choosing…However, Plaintiff in good conscience cannot allow his music to be used as a ‘theme song’ for a divisive, un-American campaign of ignorance and hate.”

This fellow rocker recently demanded that Trump stop playing his music at a rally as well.
