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!!!

| Filed under: Sin CityBillboard Music AwardsImagine Dragons

Imagine Dragons paid homage to the late Ben E. King at the Billboard Music Awards with a cover of Stand By Me.

John Legend introduced them, explaining how hundreds of artists have covered this song over the years, but this has to go down as one of the best renditions.

The group didn't try to 'make it their own,' they just played the tune the way we all know it, allowing the crowd to join in and sing along during the tribute.

And letting people say goodbye while honoring the musician is what tributes are all about, aren't they?
