Two candidates of the Republican Party presidential nomination, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, used R.E.M.'s music in their election events.

Specifically make input in their speeches, with the classic "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)".

R.E.M.'s  singer Michael Stipe got ungry by that and he wrote :


"Fuck off pathetically hungry for power and attention weaklings. Do not use our music for your stupid comedy" , on his twitter account.


Of course, the official position of the band was much more relaxed :

"Although we do not approve the use of our music to political events and ask candidates to stop doing it, we have to remind our audience not to let you distracted from important issues and problems "
