Eric Burdon responded critically to President Donald Trump‘s campaign using The Animals‘ 1964 hit “House of the Rising Sun.”
The song was played over loudspeakers as Air Force One carrying Trump taxied down the runway of an airport in Wilmington, North Carolina, en route to an appearance there.
Burdon took exception on social media to Trump using the music without permission for campaign purposes.
“Even though nobody asked my permission, I wasn’t surprised to learn that #Trump #864511320 used #Houseof theRisingSun for his rally the other day,” Burdon wrote on Instagram.
He added, “A tale of sin and misery set in a brothel suits him so perfectly! Far more appropriate for this time in our history might be.”
