Neil Young Blasts Donald Trump Over Unauthorized Use of 'Rockin' in the Free World'

The Canadian singer wasn't happy when he learned that the billionaire used the song while he took the stage at the Trump Tower on Tuesday to declare his presidential candidacy.

AceShowbiz - %cNeil Young% doesn't want %cDonald Trump% to rock with him in the free world. The Canadian musician called out Trump after he found out that his song "Rockin' in the Free World" was played as the billionaire took the stage at the Trump Tower on Tuesday, June 16 to declare his presidential candidacy.

In a statement released via his management company on Tuesday evening, Young made it clear that Trump did not have permission to use the song. "Donald Trump was not authorized to use 'Rockin' in the Free World' in his presidential candidacy announcement," read the statement.

"Neil Young, a Canadian citizen, is a supporter of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America," it added.

Trump's decision to play "Rockin' in the Free World" while declaring his presidential candidacy is interesting. The rock anthem off Young's 1989's "Freedom" was written as a criticism aimed at the Republican George H. W. Bush's administration and how it did not care about America's poor. Trump is a Republican.
