Some of these political takedowns are legendary.
Never before has a President been the subject of so many vitriolic pop songs. Indeed, it was with great difficulty that Donald Trump got any musician at all to perform at his inauguration in 2017. Thus, we've compiled a list of our favourite Trump protest songs (so far).

She deals with political issues on her new album 'Walls'.
Barbra Streisand has just released a soaring new single paying tribute to President Donald Trump; it's called 'Don't Lie To Me' and it's a ruthless take down of his political regime. But that's only the tip of the iceberg with her newest album 'Walls', released this Fall.
The piano-led ballad is as unambiguous and unapologetic as Trump himself, but targets him for the blatant lies and deceit that have come from him since taking office with lines like 'Hard to believe the things you say' and 'You change the facts to justify'.

Snoop hit out at Trump's supporters, and made sure to single out Kanye as he did so.
The iconic hip-hop star, who first arrived on the scene over 25 years ago, was speaking to radio DJ Suss One for The Feature Presentation on SiriusXM this week, a clip of which found its way onto YouTube on Tuesday (September 18th). Snoop’s NSFW broadside was triggered when the presenter told him that “a lot of his fans” often get angry if Trump is criticised on the air.
“Well you need to know that a lot of your fans is racist,” the 46 year old rapper retorted frankly. “I don’t give a f***. I tell them straight up. If you like that n***** you mother****** racist.”

Michael Moore, in his new film 'Fahrenheit 11/9', reckons Trump was motivated by jealousy of Gwen Stefani. Read on...
Solo pop star; lead singer of No Doubt; mother of three and in a happy relationship with country music artist Blake Shelton – Gwen Stefani is totally, unimpeachably harmless, right?
Moore’s new documentary film about Trump’s candidacy and presidency, Fahrenheit 11/9, which premieres on Thursday (September 6th) at the 2018 Toronto Film Festival, argues that Trump initially announced his bid because he found out that his salary on NBC’s ‘The Apprentice’ was lower than what Stefani was getting for ‘The Voice’ on the same network.

West also spoke about his notorious slavery comments in a Chicago radio interview this week.
Appearing on the chat show host’s show back in early August, the rapper was asked why he thinks that the current president cares about black people – spinning a statement that West himself made more than a decade ago about former president George W. Bush in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Speaking to 107.5 WGCI Chicago, 40 year old West was asked the same question, and, after a long 25-second pause, he eventually answered: “I feel that he cares about the way black people feel about him.”

When politicians try to get some reflected glory off pop anthems, it never ends well.
After Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler had to write a second cease-and-desist letter to Donald Trump asking him to stop playing their songs during his rallies this week – having already called him out for doing the same with ‘Dream On’ three years ago – we thought we’d compile some other famous moments when politicians got scolded by musicians for using their songs without permission.
Almost inevitably, such clashes come up when songs are used by right-wing or conservative parties and candidates. Musicians are a fairly liberal bunch, understandably, and they don’t want their messages and sentiments getting confused with those counter to their own beliefs and ideologies.
So, here’s seven other famous moments when politicians tried to get some credibility off pop stars.

Tyler has ordered Trump to stop playing 'Livin' On The Edge' during his rallies.
The rock legends’ song ‘Livin’ On The Edge’ was blasted out at a rally at Charleston, West Virginia on Tuesday (August 21st). Lawyers for their frontman Tyler quickly responded, issuing a cease-and-desist letter to prevent Trump from doing so again.
“Mr Trump is creating the false impression that our client has given his consent for the use of his music, and even that he endorses the presidency of Mr Trump,” the letter reads. “Mr Trump does not have any right to use the name, image, voice or likeness of our client, without his express written permission.”
