Linkin Park's late singer Chester Bennington had called Trump 'a greater threat to the USA than terrorism'
Donald Trump tweeted a reelection campaign video with with a rendition of Linkin Park's "In the End."
Twitter removed the video after the band filed a copyright-takedown notice demanding its removal, reported by Variety.
Linkin Park confirmed Saturday night it had taken action to remove the video. "Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music. A cease and desist has been issued," the group said in a statement on Twitter.
A message in that video now reads, "This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner."
Linkin Park's late lead singer Chester Bennington — who died two years ago, on July 20, 2017 — had been strongly anti-Trump. In a post a few months before his death, Bennington tweeted, "I repeat….. Trump is a greater threat to the USA than terrorism!! We have to take back our voices and stand for what we believe in."
Donald Trump and his campaign have been subject to frequent objections from artists demanding that he stop using their music in his ads or at his rallies. Those include the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Panic! at the Disco, Pharrell Williams, R.E.M., Aerosmith, Adele, the Village People and Tom Petty's family.
