The Backstreet Boys Do Not Want it Trump’s Way

By Amanda Wicks

It seems like Donald Trump is rather limited when it comes to what music he can use at his rallies, since few artists and bands want to be associated with the Republican presidential candidate. Not the Rolling Stones, not Adele, not Queen, not the estate of George Harrison. Not even the Backstreet Boys.

The boy band is the latest to speak out against Trump’s use of their song during a rally in Ocala, Florida. On Wednesday (Oct. 12), Trump reportedly played their 1999 hit single, “I Want It That Way,” many times. And the Backstreet Boys were none too happy about it. “[The Backstreet Boys] did not approve this and we are not associated with the Trump camp,” the group’s publicist Steven Trachtenbroit emailed The Daily Beast

For those musicians who have politely asked Trump’s camp to stop using their songs, they’ve continued to be ignored. In July, Trump once again played the Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” even though he was asked to not use their music.

It doesn’t seem like the Backstreet Boys have taken any legal action, like a cease and desist letter, but simply want to make sure their fans are clear: They do not want it Trump’s way.
