"F--k you. You’re not invited. Stop playing my song. No thanks."

Panic! At The Disco's Brendon Urie has joined a long list of artists who have told Donald Trump to stop using their music at his election rallies.

Earlier this week, Tom Petty's family sent a cease and desist letter to Trump after 'I Won’t Back Down' was played at his poorly attended rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Now, Brendon has slapped Trump with a similar warning, telling him to stop using Panic!'s songs. 'High Hopes' was played at a recent event in Phoenix, Arizona.

Taking to Twitter, Brendon wrote: "Dear Trump Campaign, Fuck you. You’re not invited. Stop playing my song. No thanks, Brendon Urie, Panic! At The Disco & company."

Underneath that tweet, Brendon then posted a link to HeadCount encouraging people to register to vote.

He wrote: "Dear Everyone Else, Donald Trump represents nothing we stand for. The highest hope we have is voting this monster out in November. Please do your part:"

Other artists and bands who have said that Trump is not allowed to use their songs at rallies include Elton John, R.E.M., Aerosmith, Prince's estate and Adele.

Back in 2016, a spokesperson for Adele said: “Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning”.
