House of Pain are the most recent musical act to tell Donald Trump to stop playing their music at campaign rallies. The presidential candidate has been playing the 1992 hit 'Jump Around' and the group's frontman, Everlast, is anything but thrilled.

Everlast, who is now an acoustic musician, told Billboard: “The smartest businessman in the world should know that you have to license this music if it makes an appearance on TV with you, and they’re making appearances on TV -- so you’re a moron.

"And the reason he doesn’t ask anybody – a lot of people have asked him to cease and desist – [is] because every fucking person would say, ‘No, fuck you,’ except for whatever right-wing country artist wants to give him the song, and I don’t even think there’s many of them."

He also remarks on the fact that Trump used the song of a white hip-hop group and says this was by no accident.

"That's hip-hop, man, that is black culture -- what the f--- do you think you're doing with it? He's a f---ing racist piece of shit," he stated. "That's what he's trying to do: One of the most well-known white hip-hop groups... they're not stupid, the people around him. They're trying to create these inroads to people's demographic cubbyholes, so they can be like, 'Yeah, we're down with hip-hop. Yeah, we're f---ing cool.' 

Then Everlast's anger boiled over and he started to really speak his mind.

"F--- that dude. I'll smack that f---er's comb-over right off his f---ing scalp. Like, for real, if I met Donald Trump, I'd punch him in his f---ing face. And that's not a joke. Even if he did become president -- watch out, Donald Trump, because I will punch you in your f---ing face if I ever meet you. Secret Service had better just f---ing be on it. Don't let me anywhere within a block. This is horrible."

Everlast is the most recent musician to speak out against Trump, with a number of artists outraged by the use of their music at campaign rallies. Moby recent called Trump a "piece of sh*t" while Zedd is using Trump toilet paper in the bathroom.
