Kid Rock is pretty much the only musician to come out and publicly endorse Donald Trump. Mac Miller, YG and Nipsey Hussle, Chuck D, Aerosmith, Raury, R.E.M., Billy Corgan, and many more have either come out against him publicly or told him to stop using their music. Well, now it’s House Of Pain frontman Everlast’s turn to add to the outcry. He first took to Twitter with an informal cease and desist order to stop using the 1992 House Of Pain hit “Jump Around.”
Hey @realDonaldTrump stop using my song jump around at your rallies you piece of shit. Cease and desist is coming you scumbag.

But that was only a mild hint of what he had in store for the Republican presidential candidate. Everlast then unleashed a tirade to Billboard, in which he called Trump a “piece of shit” and threatened to “smack that fucker’s comb-over right off his fucking scalp.” Here’s an excerpt below:
This guy is supposedly this really good businessman, which is the biggest load of shit ever. The smartest businessman in the world should know that you have to license this music if it makes an appearance on TV with you, and they’re making appearances on TV — so you’re a moron. And the reason he doesn’t ask anybody — a lot of people have asked him to cease and desist — [is] because every f—ing person would say, ‘No, f— you,’ except for whatever right-wing country artist wants to give him the song, and I don’t even think there’s many of them.
