This is too perfect!

Donald Trump has had a wacky habit of using any ol' song he wants on the campaign trail this year, all without permission. And musicians are getting really tired of it!

Thankfully, a few of them partnered up with John Oliver on Last Week Tonight to FINALLY do something about it!

On Sunday night's episode on HBO, Oliver opened up the segment explaining how politicians have pretty much co-opted pop and rock music on the campaign trail, before giving way to an amazing group of artists singing a NEW song about the problem!

Led by Usher, the funny music video included riffs from Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Cyndi Lauper, Josh Groban, and Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons — and it delivered a VERY clear message to politicians: stop using our songs!!!

Cyndi Lauper Explains Why She's Performing In North Carolina Despite Anti-LGBT Laws — Does She Have A Point??

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinutePolitikCyndi LauperLate Night TVSeth MeyersTransgenderControversyLGBT

Trans people just wanna have access to the bathroom. They just wanna.

Cyndi Lauper is without a doubt one of the most influential gay icons of the 1980s, which is why some fans questioned her decision to not cancel her shows in North Carolina despite the state's anti-transgender bathroom laws.

The pink lady already explained that she was going to donate all proceeds from her concerts to local LGBT-friendly charities, and now she's speaking out again!

Cyndi stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday to share her take on the controversy, and she actually made some really good points!

For one thing, she believes it's more supportive to physically be in North Carolina and to rally against resident bigot Gov. Pat McCrory than to voice your concerns from the sidelines.

In fact, the True Colors singer even shared a touching story about how deciding to play shows in Florida when Trayvon Martin was murdered actually helped the community!

We still think musicians cancelling their gigs sends a strong message, but we're glad artists like Cyndi are willing to slum it down South for the betterment of our transgender peers!

Ch-ch-check out Cyndi's politically charged Late Night appearance (above)!!!

It's been about 4 weeks since North Carolina's Governor Pat McCrory signed the bigoted House Bill 2 into law, taking away LGBT employment discrimination protection and keeping transgender students from using the bathroom associated with the gender they identify as.

Since then, entertainers have been raising their voices to stand up for what's right; Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, and even Cirque du Soleil have all canceled shows in the state to protest the bill.
