You're fired, Donald Trump!
Well, not exactly — but Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is threatening to lay the legal smackdown on the presidential candidate over his campaign's use of the famous hit song Dream On!

On Sunday, the 67-year-old legendary rocker sent a cease-and-desist letter to the GOP candidate's campaign, asking them to stop playing the tune at rallies and campaign events — and it's apparently the second time The Donald has been warned about using Tyler's track!
The letter focuses on implied endorsement — that is, Tyler and the band don't want it to seem as though they are on Trump's side based on the fact that the 69-year-old candidate publicly uses their song for political events:
"Trump for President does not have our client's permission to use ‘Dream On' or any of our client's other music in connection with the Campaign because it gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump's presidential bid."
So is it feud time??
As much as The Donald loves to feud with anybody he can find, Tyler and Trump are buddies — the rock star attended an August debate as the business mogul's guest, and the magnificently-coiffed real estate tycoon even tweeted praise of an Aerosmith concert last year:
But apparently all's fair in friendship and politics, because Tyler isn't messing around with this second C-and-D.
Guess we'll soon see what Trump's next move will be!
