Last Week Tonight Examines Politicians Using Songs Without Permission on the Campaign Trail
Of the many disturbing things to notice during this election season, one small aspect to note is the disregard for getting permission to play a song at an event.
You might have heard of a number of bands raising this issue recently with Donald Trump who has played songs Queen and Neil Young without asking permission.
On last night’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Oliver pointed out not only how wrong it is to play songs at a political event without permission, but how so many politicians don’t even get the irony of what’s being played.
Also, he got a bunch of famous musicians from Usher to Sheryl Crow and way more to make a song about this very issue.
