Social media users responded sharply Thursday night after Donald Trump closed his lengthy speech accepting the Republican presidential nomination with the Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Now the iconic British rock band has responded.

“The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump,” they tweeted on Friday afternoon. “‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ was used without the band’s permission.”

Numerous artists have objected to Trump’s use of their songs during his presidential campaign, including Neil Young, Steven Tyler, R.E.M., Adele, George Harrison’s estate, and Queen.

The Rolling Stones had already asked Trump not to use their music, a request the candidate clearly ignored.
