Donald Trump defies Adele’s ban on using her music

US Presidential candidate continues to play 'Skyfall' and 'Rolling In The Deep'

Donald Trump has defied Adele‘s efforts to stop him using her music as he runs for US President.

As reported, Adele has denounced US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s use of her music at Republican rallies and released a statement saying he can not play her songs during his campaign. Trump’s use of Adele music dates back to November when he played ‘Skyfall’ at a rally in Ohio.

Despite Adele’s best efforts, reports from Trump’s rally in New Hampshire overnight state that the Republican candidate left the stage to the sound of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’. Prior to addressing the people of Exeter, Adele’s theme from Bond film Skyfall was played.


Both songs can be heard playing in the background of a video recorded from another event in Little Rock, Arkansas on Wednesday night.


Approached by The Independent earlier this week, a spokesperson for the singer has said: “Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning”.

A number of singers have previously objected to Trump using their music at campaign rallies, including Neil Young and Aerosmith.

REM frontman Michael Stipe released a statement after Trump used his band’s music. Stipe said: “Go fuck yourselves, the lot of you – you sad, attention-grabbing, power-hungry little men. Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.”
