Yes, how dare artists protect their intellectual property!!!! 

In the case of pop music the, ahem, “artists” are usually only too happy for it to be disseminated far and wide by any means possible - its all advertising for their “product”, as is their faux outrage over Trumps use of it. As they say in the business, “any publicity is good publicity”. Most of them probably voted for Trump though theyd never admit it - that would hurt sales.

He should have used "The Devil Went Down to Georgia"...

Excellent point! Better song, better artist and Daniels wouldn’t have been whiny about his song being used, probably would have been honored.

Maybe 'Traitor' by Motorhead, or 'Loudmouth' or 'Mama's Boy' by the Ramones. And the Village People, Rolling Stones and others are ready to nail him too.
