David Bowie’s Son Duncan Jones Reacts To Donald Trump Using ‘Heroes’

Donald Trump had gotten into trouble for using Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’ during his campaign announcement. This time, he is receiving backlash for using David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ as the stage exit music at the 2024 campaign announcement. Bowie’s son Duncan Jones recently reacted to this incident on Twitter.

The former president has used Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’ and ‘Devil’s Sidewalk’ numerous times during rallies or campaign speeches since 2015. Young, who is not really fond of Donald Trump, sued him upon hearing this for copyright infringement. However, the musician voluntarily dismissed the case with prejudice.

Recently, Trump gave a speech at his Mar-a-Lago estate to announce his 2024 presidential bid. While he was leaving the stage after the speech, David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ played in the background. This caused many to wonder whether Trump asked for permission from Bowie’s estate. It turns out he didn’t.

“Pretty sure he’s just doing that now to wind me up,” wrote Duncan Jones in a tweet after hearing about the incident. Later, Jonas saw another tweet posted by a fan who asked him to do something about this. “We’ve been through this before,” Jones responded. “He used the same track 6 years ago. I’ve been told there is little we can do about it.”

So, it seems like this wasn’t the first time Donald Trump used ‘Heroes’ during rallies. Despite how much the fans are disturbed by his use of the song, Duncan Jones revealed that he cannot really do much about it. Besides Neil Young and David Bowie, Trump used several other artists’ songs, such as Aerosmith, Adele, and Elton John, without permission.
