Sir Elton John has criticized Donald Trump for using his music for his campaign without getting permission.

Trump has used “Tiny Dancer” and “Rocket Man” during his campaign rallies to amp up the crowd. John wanted to make it clear that Trump did not get permission to use John’s music, reports Contact Music.

“Elton’s music has not been requested for use in any official capacity by Donald Trump. Any use of his music should not be seen as an endorsement of Donald Trump by Elton,” John’s publicist says.

John isn’t the only musician upset over Trump’s unauthorized use of their music. Adele spoke out against Trump playing her song “Rolling in the Deep” and R.E.M. spoke out against their song ‘It’s the End of the World” being played.
