President Trump plays The Rolling Stones despite requests to stop

You can’t always get what you want — unless you’re the president.

President Trump played “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” after his hour and a half long speech in Phoenix on Tuesday night despite numerous warnings from the legendary band to stop using their music.

Trump used the band’s song “Start Me Up” after his win in the Indiana Republican primary on Tuesday night and he also used “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” numerous times at a rally in West Virginia on Thursday night. The band then released a statement condemning the use.

“The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately,” the Stones’ publicist said in a statement to CNN.

The POTUS was even informed of the band’s statement, to which he responded: “I have no problem with that. I like Mick Jagger.”

Apparently, he forgot and went with one of the band’s hits anyway.

Last week wasn’t even the first time the group had to tell Trump to stop using its songs.

In January, the President and First Lady walked out to “Heart of Stone” at the inaugural concert – even though back in May the band blatantly declared that the presidential candidate did not have permission to use the music.

Even after that, he used “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” after his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention and again when he won the election and gave an acceptance speech on the morning of Nov. 9.

Rolling Stones frontman Jagger, who hails from England, previously said that “everyone outside the U.S. is kind of mystified” that Trump was elected.

A rep for the Stones did not immediately respond to a Daily News request for comment.

Several other artists have requested Trump stop using their music, including, Aerosmith, Adele, Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, R.E.M., George Harrison and more.
