    In this May 21, 2016, file photo, singer/songwriter Steven Tyler performs at Keep Memory Alive's 20th annual "Power of Love Gala" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

    Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler sent a "cease and desist" letter to the White House demanding that President Donald Trump stop playing the band's songs at its rallies, Variety reported.

    The letter came after "Livin' on the Edge" played at Trump's West Virginia rally on Tuesday. Tyler's attorney argues that playing the song in a public arena misleads people into thinking Tyler endorses Trump's presidency.

    "MY MUSIC IS FOR CAUSES NOT FOR POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS OR RALLIES," Tyler tweeted.

    Aerosmith's recording company has pulled the public performance rights of another of their songs, "Dream On," after Trump used it in his presidential campaign.
