Steven Tyler is known for a lot of things. Rock and roll music, snorting up half of Peru, and the “stick it to the man” attitude but as Dylan would say, “The Times They Are a-Changin”.
Steve Tyler, frontman for Aerosmith, had his lawyer send a ‘cease and desist’ order to the President, forbidding him to play any of the band’s songs at his rallies and campaign events. So now his former fans strike back with a movement of their own, #donewithaerosmith. I guess the president will have to make due with Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. As well as whatever loud rock music that’s still available to him. And don’t forget Kanye West, one of the biggest stars on the planet.
Steven Tyler fans are a die-hard bunch, but his rock-star lifestyle and two first names weren’t enough to calm some upset fans this week after a decidedly un-rock-and-roll move.
The man who “snorted half of Peru” sent a cease-and-desist to President Donald Trump for playing his music.
While playing Aerosmith’s “Livin’ on the Edge” in West Virginia this Tuesday, Trump apparently gave “the false impression” that Steven Tyler has given his consent for the use of his music, according to the letter sent by his attorney.
Fans were quick to roast Tyler for his reaction, piling onto Twitter with some searing memes.

More from Twitter: “Confused why you don’t want your former fans to listen to your music? Too many enhancers? Your brain?”
“And well he should. I had forgotten about his dalliances with a 14 year old when he was in his late 20’s. He’s a pedophile and a lot of other’s who didn’t know are finding out about his sordid past. He should have kept his over sized mouth shut.”
“Don’t kid yourself Steven, it’s definitely political! If I wasn’t #DONEWithAerosmith, I’d suggest all of us patriots synchronized playing “Living on the Edge” at our next rally I prefer Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, or any band that doesn’t squeal like a lil b××ch! ”

Steve Tyler was very short-sighted. Aerosmith could’ve been the standard for the Save America movement. But instead, he will be just another roadblock to prosperity.
