There was a time when listening to music was basically a way to enjoy life, relax and get away from the problems of the world.
Those days are long gone.
Now EVERYTHING IS POLITICAL!
Tom Petty is a rock legend and personally his earliest works were the best as is many artists.
Reports have surfaced that the family/estate of Petty who make MILLIONS of dollars from royalties from his records don’t like President Trump- go figure.
They have to be libs…
From FOX News:
In a statement issued on Twitter on Saturday evening, the rocker’s family revealed that they’d issued a cease and desist to Trump after using the song, explaining that the president’s beliefs were far out of line from Petty’s own.
Take a look:

Either they hate Trump or simply want more money.
“Tom Petty’s song ‘I Won’t Back Down’ was used today at Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa, OK.,” read the statement. “Trump was in no way authorized to use this song to further a campaign that leaves too many Americans and common sense behind.”
The note continued, explaining that Petty and his family “stand against racism and discrimination,” and said the musician would never want his song used to promote “a campaign of hate.”
“Tom wrote this song for the underdog, for the common man, and for EVERYONE. We want to make it clear that we believe everyone is free to vote as they like, think as they like, but the Petty family doesn’t stand for this,” the statement read. “We believe in America and we believe in democracy. But Donald Trump is not representing noble ideals of either. We would hate for fans that are marginalized by this administration to think we were complicit in this usage. Concurrently, we have issued a cease and desist notice to the Trump campaign.”
President Trump and the vast majority of his supporters are also against ‘hate’ and ‘racism’ and ‘discrimination of any kind,’ but the angry, unhinged Left has screamed this at and about Trump and his supporters for so long they’re too invested be honest and truthful about the man at this point.
And shame on the Petty family for being so petty.
So I will remove Petty from my playlist as I cruise my Range Rover or relax in my Jacuzzi.
I will also use his CD’s as target practice.
