Neil Young has once again lashed out at Donald Trump after he used at least three of Young’s songs at a Fourth of July celebration at Mount Rushmore.
“Keep on Rockin in the Free World,” “Like a Hurricane,” and “Cowgirl in the Sand” were all played at the event. Young responded to a clip of “Rockin in the Free World,” writing, “This is NOT Ok with me…”

Later, Young quote retweeted another video, writing, “I stand in solidarity with the Lakota Sioux & this is NOT ok with me.” The Lakota Sioux was the indigenous group who were forced off of their land and had their spiritual shrine “The Six Grandfathers” changed into Mount Rushmore.
Young previously tried to stop Trump from playing his music when he played “Keep on Rockin in the Free World” at an event announcing his presidential bid.
