The hip-hop singer has assured Trump on Twitter that a "cease and desist" is coming his way
House Of Pain frontman Everlast has told Donald Trump to stop using one of the hip-hop group's hits at his rallies, labelling the Republican hopeful as a "piece of shit" and a "scumbag".
Trump has reportedly used House Of Pain's 1992 song 'Jump Around' during his rallies as he aims to secure the Republican Party candidacy of this year's US Presidential Election.
Everlast took to Twitter to express his opinion on the matter :
"Hey @realDonaldTrump stop using my song jump around at your rallies you piece of shit. Cease and desist is coming you scumbag."
Everlast told Billboard that "the reason [Trump] doesn’t ask anybody” for permission to use their music is “because every fucking person would say, ‘No, fuck you'.”
“Fuck that dude," he continued. "I’ll smack that fucker’s comb-over right off his fucking scalp. Like, for real, if I met Donald Trump, I’d punch him in his fucking face. And that’s not a joke. Even if he did become president — watch out, Donald Trump, because I will punch you in your fucking face if I ever meet you. Secret Service had better just fucking be on it. Don’t let me anywhere within a block. This is horrible."
House Of Pain definitely aren't the first act unhappy with Trump playing their music, with Adele, REM, Aerosmith and Neil Young having experienced the same unwanted attention from the Presidential Candidate.
