Tyler’s representatives sent Donald Trump For President Inc. a cease-and-desist order to stop using Aerosmith’s “Dream On” at campaign events. This is the second time Trump has been told not to use the song (he was told the same thing after an August 21 event in Mobile, Alabama).

“Trump For President does not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On’ or any of our client’s other music in connection with the Campaign because it gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid,” states Tyler’s cease-and-desist letter.

Following Trump’s appearance at his Manhattan Trump Tower in June to announce his fifth bid as the GOP’s presidential candidate, he met the press with Neil Young’s 1989 classic “Rockin’ In The Free Word” blaring from the speakers — a song which slammed then-President George H.S. Bush’s administration and Young’s perception of how Bush treated the poorer citizens of the United States. Young called Trump’s choice of his song “a surprise,” adding that “Donald Trump is Donald Trump, and I don’t dislike Donald, [but] I don’t agree with his policies… Donald just never asked me.”
