Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie Tells Trump ‘Stop Playing My Song’
Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie used a four-letter word in condemnation of President Donald Trump‘s use of the rock band’s hit song “High Hopes” at his rallies.
“Dear Trump Campaign, F**k you. You’re not invited. Stop playing my song,” Urie wrote on Twitter.
In a subsequent tweet, Urie said, “Donald Trump represents nothing we stand for. The highest hope we have is voting this monster out in November.”
He asked Americans to do their part to defeat the president, who is seeking re-election.
Under that line, Urie posted a link to HeadCount, a nonpartisan organization that encourages youth to register as voters and to participate in democracy.
The latest provocation from the Trump campaign came at the campaign rally held in Tulsa last week, when the song was played as Trump walked out to the stage at the Bank of Oklahoma Center.
Trump’s return to the campaign trail proved to be somewhat disappointing, with a lower than expected turnout.
“High Hopes” peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the band’s highest-charting song on the chart. It holds the record for most weeks spent at number one on the Hot Rock Songs chart, at 65 weeks.
