18 popular songs used in US presidential campaigns

Photos Logo Photos | Slide 1 of 18: Trump

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently received a legal threat from Aerosmith’s lead vocalist Steven Tyler (L) for using the 1973 song “Dream On” in his campaign. The singer’s representatives have sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump for playing the song at his rallies, adding that it was the second time that the band has asked him to stop using the song. In the past, several music artistes have supported U.S. presidential candidates through their songs, while a few others have refused permission or expressed their reluctance about their songs being used for political reasons. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
