All Star Band Tells Politicians ‘Don’t Use Our Song’ [Video]
Almost every week, another musician threatens a law suit because a political campaign used thier classic song wothout permission. Sunday night on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, they put their foot down.
An all-star roster of artists came together to sing an anthem about politicians they don’t like using their songs without permission.
“Don’t Use Our Song,” which debuted on the HBO talk show, features Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Usher, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, Cyndi Lauper, Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Josh Groban and Michael Bolton.
Oliver introduced the song by saying, “The point here is, if artists want to lend their music to politicians that’s fine. But it is not okay for politicians to just take their songs.”
