English rock band “The Rolling Stones” has again accused Republican presidential nominee Donald for using a song of the band during his nomination event.

The rock band has accused Trump for using their song “You can’t always get what you want” at a event without seeking their permission.

The band took to Twiiter to respond as Trump ended his 76-minute nomination acceptance speech at the GOP convention on Thursday to the strains of the song, which was released in 1969, according to a report in variety.com.

“The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump. ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ was used without the band’s permission,” read a post from the band’s official Twitter handle.

“You can’t always get what you want” was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and was released on the band’s album “Let It Bleed”.

On Thursday, late guitarist George Harrison’s estate also denounced Trump for playing the The Beatles’ song “Here comes the sun” while introducing daughter Ivanka Trump at the convention.

“The unauthorised use of ‘Here comes the sun’ at the RNC in Cleveland is offensive and against the wishes of the George Harrison estate,” Harrison’s estate’s official Twitter account posted.

The Rolling Stones had already denounced Trump in early May after he began his Indiana primary victory speech by playing the band’s 1981 hit “Start me up” without the band’s permission.
