On Tuesday (June 23), Trump held a rally in Phoenix, where he used Panic!'s song "High Hopes" for his entrance. Within hours, though, Urie took to his social media to demand the White House "stop playing my song."
He also added a big "fuck you," just to be extra clear about things.
"Donald Trump represents nothing we stand for," Urie wrote. "The highest hope we have is voting this monster out in November."
Unfortunately, playing the Panic! At the Disco song probably wasn't the most offensive thing about Trump's rally. After all, he got straight-up racist by calling COVID-19 "kung flu."

Fuck you. You're not invited. Stop playing my song.

Just the other day, the estate of Tom Petty also sent the president a cease-and-desist over playing one of the late artist's songs.
