Usually, musicians aim to get their songs played at all kinds of events. Endorsement from famous personalities can also help musicians reach a new audience and ultimately add to the success of their music. It is a very rare occurrence for an artist to request someone to stop playing their music. This is exactly what the band Sting did when George W. Bush played one of their songs during the 2000 U.S election. The song “Brand New Day” was requested to stop being played by Bush.
