Phil Collins became the last musician to hit the president Donald Trump with a cease and desist letter after his song was played at a rally.

The classic song from the singers of Genesis In The Air Tonight was performed at the presidential campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa on Wednesday night before Trump arrived on stage.

Snippets of the track being played at the event began circulating on social media, and many felt the song choice was dull, given the nature of the coronavirus pandemic and how the disease is transmitted.

However, it was also claimed that the Trump administration was not allowed to perform the song.

A representative for Collins told Consequence of Sound: Yes, we are well aware of the use of this song by the Trump campaigns and we have already issued a cease and desist letter via our lawyers who continue to monitor the situation.

Collins, 69, released In The Air Tonight in 1981 and the lyrics include: I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord / And I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life.

Collins shared his take on Trump in 2016 and told Billboard: I have a house full of anti-Trumpers.

Even my 11-year-old Matthew hates Trump. I really hate Trumps substitutes; I just wish one of the guys someday get up on CNN and say, yeah, sorry he f **** d when he said that. He should never have said that.

But none of them do. They just support it. He makes huge blunders and no one recognizes them.

He added: Ooh, that drives me crazy. I just think Trump is an accident waiting to happen a big accident waiting to happen.

The British musician joins a growing list of artists who have not backed Trump by playing their music in his White House re-election campaign.

This year alone, the Rolling Stones, Linkin Park, Neil Young, Panic! At The Disco and Tom Petty’s Estate are among those who either sent cease and desist letters or claimed the Trump administration was not allowed to use the songs.

In July, Sir Elton John and Sir Mick Jagger were among a large group of popular artists to sign an open letter calling for a ban for politicians to play their music without permission.

In the letter shared on the Alliance for Artists’ Rights website, the singers say politicians could violate copyright law if they continue to use their songs.

Cyndi Lauper, Lorde, REM, Linkin Park, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Sia, Blondie, Sheryl Crow, Green Day and Panic! at the Disco are among the other artists who have joined the petition.
