From Neil Young to R.E.M., there have been a handful of musicians recently who have asked Donald Trump to stop playing their music at campaign rallies. But none have apparently ruffled the feathers of the Republican presidential hopeful quite like Aerosmith.
But where Trump was relatively quiet on the verbal assaults from Young and R.E.M. — the latter of which brought this juicy quote from Michael Stipe: “Go fuck yourselves, the lot of you — you sad, attention-grabbing, power-hungry little men… Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign” — he lashed out at Tyler this afternoon via Twitter.
Trump says he has a better song that “Dream On” — Ha! Imagine that! — to use at campaign stops, and he was actually doing Tyler a favor, giving the singer “more publicity on his song request than he’s gotten in ten years.”
