EVERLAST SLAMS TRUMP FOR USING HOUSE OF PAIN HIT, 'JUMP AROUND'

He has issued a cease-and-desist order...

Singer/songwriter Everlast has demanded that presidential hopeful Donald Trump stop using his '92 hit 'Jump Around' as part of his campaign. 

According to Billboard, Everlast (real name: Erik Schrody) first found out Trump was using the song after a video from CCN appeared on Twitter. 

"The smartest businessman in the world should know that you have to license this music if it makes an appearance on TV with you," Everlast told Billboard. 

Everlast isn't the only musician to be targeted by the Trump campaign — Aerosmith, R.E.M. and Neil Young, among others, have all demanded Trump stop using their songs at his events.

As of yesterday, Everlast has promised to issue Trump with a cease-and-desist order.
