Sing sends cease and desist letter to the White House.

Rock icon Steve Tyler has demanded that President Donald Trump stop playing Aerosmith song at his rallies by issuing a cease and desist letter to the White House.

At a rally in West Virginia on Tuesday night, Trump team played the Aerosmith song, “Livin’ on the Edge."

Despite the song being hard to hear over the voices of the crowd, Tyler's attorney claimed the song was recognizable enough to imply that Tyler and the band endorsed Trump.

And Tyler isn't happy about being associated with Trump.

The DaiyWire reports: The letter, sent Wednesday, cites the Lanham Act, which prohibits uses of intellectual property that carry with them “any false designation or misleading description or representation of fact … likely to cause confusion … as to the affiliation, connection, or association of such person with another person."

In other words, Tyler and his band-mates are concerned that people who hear an Aerosmith song at a Trump rally might mistakenly believe the band supports the Trump agenda.

This isn't the first time a band has objected to a campaign using a song, but with President Trump the situation is unique since he can often afford to pay "public performance fees" that allow him to play songs at his rallies without the relevant band's specific permission.

In a previous case with Aerosmith's song, "Dream On," performing rights organization BMI actually pulled public performance rights so that Trump wouldn't be able to purchase the song to play at his rallies after the band complained.

Even the 90's era Grunge band Pearl Jam is facing backlash after featuring a poster for a 'get-out-the-vote' concert depicting a dead President Trump.

The poster also shows an American eagle eating the remains of Donald Trump's corpse.

Matt Rosendale’s Senate campaign referred to the poster “reprehensible.

”A spokesman for Matt Rosendale said:

“Once again, Jon Tester has shown he will stand with the far-left over Montanans. This poster from Pearl Jam is disgusting and reprehensible.
