Rihanna and Guns N' Roses - specifically Axl Rose - have taken to Twitter to denounce the use of their music at Donald Trump's rallies.

3 days ago, President Donald Trump's campaign airing the GN'R song "Sweet Child O' Mine" at his West Virginia rally.

Further to this Rolling Stone reports that Rihanna's team have sent the President a cease and desist letter.

Phillip Rucker, political analyst covering the rally, tweeted "Currently, Rihanna's 'Don't Stop the Music' is blaring in Chattanooga as aides toss free Trump T-shirts into the crowd, like a ball game". "Such use is therefore improper".

And Aerosmith's Steven Tyler was left unimpressed when Trump played "Livin" on the Edge" at a rally, three years after he had been issued a warning for using "Dream On' at campaign rallies while looking to be elected.

The Grammy award-winner is the latest prominent artist to denounced Trump for using their music to promote causes they do not believe in.

Just hours after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting on October 27, Williams' song "Happy" was played at a Future Farmers of America convention in IN, where Trump spoke.

"Not for much longer...", Rihanna said about Trump playing her tunes.

This happened after Rihanna endorsed Andrew Gillium, the Democratic candidate for governor of Florida via an Instagram post.

"FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election".

That quickly drew the attention of Rihanna, who made it clear that President Trump would be getting a letter informing him that it was time to pause da replay with her music catalogue.

Pharrell Williams, Adele and Neil Young, are among the more than a dozen musical artists who don't want their music associated with Trump. Hours before her tweet, Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses accused the Trump campaign of "using loopholes" in the licenses of different venues that host the rallies without his permission.

"Just so ya know".
