NEW YORK, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Aerosmith's frontman Steven Tyler has sent presidential hopeful Donald Trump a cease-and-desist letter requesting he stop using the band's song "Dream On" during his campaign.

Tyler, a registered Republican, is not opposed to the hotel tycoon politically as he attended the second GOP debate back in August as Trump's guest. However, the rock star has threatened legal action if Trump continues using Aerosmith's song.

"'Trump for president' does not have our client's permission to use 'Dream On' or any of our client's other music in connection with the campaign because it gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump's presidential bid," the cease-and-desist letter reads.

"If Trump for president does not comply with our demands, our client will be forced to pursue any and all legal or equitable remedies which our client may have against you."

This is the third time Trump has been asked to stop playing songs on his campaign trail after using Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" and REM's "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)."

Trump last made headlines on Tuesday when he pranked GOP rival Marco Rubio with a case of water and a towel to mock the senator's gulping of water during his 2013 response speeck to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.
