Usher and other artists tell Republicans to ‘stop using our songs’ on John Oliver

Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver took on Donald Trump and the Republican Party’s history of using unauthorized music in campaigns on his Sunday night show — with the help of a few notable guests.

Oliver began the segment by pointing out the humor in Donald Trump’s song choices over the course of his campaign, including his unauthorized use of Queen’sWe Are the Champions” at last week’s Republican National Convention and a number of other instances of unlicensed song use in the past year.

At the end of the convention, as “a sarcastic amount of balloons” fell from the ceiling, Trump played the Rolling Stones’ 1969 classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” without the band’s permission — to which Oliver quipped, “No sh-t,” in a play on the song’s title.

Oliver criticized Trump’s use of REM’s “It’s the End of the World” as an introduction to his speech on the Iran nuclear agreement earlier this year. He then went on to demonstrate how unauthorized song usage has been a common trend for Republican politicians.
