Phil Collins has served Donald Trump's presidential campaign with a cease and desist after they played "In the Air Tonight" without permission during a rally in Iowa on Wednesday night.

Collins is the latest of many acts, including The Rolling Stones and Neil Young, who have issued Trump a cease an desist order for using their songs.

"In the Air Tonight" is the debut solo single by the English drummer and singer. It was released as the lead single from Collins's debut solo album, Face Value, in January 1981.

Several people also criticized the song's choice, as playing a track with title "In the Air Tonight" during a time when COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc in the country seemed to an unwise decision.

"Yes we are well aware of the Trump campaign's use of this song and we have already issued a 'cease and desist' letter via our lawyers who continue to monitor the situation," a Collins spokesperson told Consequence of Sound.
