Music and politics don't always mix.

After both Queen and the estate of the late George Harrison made it clear that they weren't happy with Donald Trump's campaign using their music during the 2016 Republican National Convention, John Oliver took it upon himself to tell politicians to cut it out.

In a hilarious video for HBO's Last Week Tonight, Oliver got musicians Usher, John Mellencamp, Sheryl Crow, Michael Bolton, Heart, Cyndi Lauper, Josh Groban and Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds to also get the message across loud and clear. Singing an original tune called "Don't Use Our Song," the catchy jingle also came with its very own cheesy music video.

"Don't use our song/ 'cause you use it wrong," the lyrics read. "It might seem appealing, but you're just stealing. ... By the time this tune is through, you'll be lucky if we don't sue."

Watch the hilarious video below, though, warning, some of the language is NSFW.

Oliver's former Daily Show boss Jon Stewart recently returned to TV to rip into Trump supporters, making an appearance on pal Stephen Colbert's Late Show last Thursday.

"You just want that person to give you your country back, because you feel that you are this country’s rightful owners,” Stewart passionately said. "There's only one problem with that -- this country isn't yours! You don't own it. It never was. There is no real America. You don't own it. You don't own patriotism. You don't own Christianity. You sure as hell don't own respect for the bravery and sacrifice for military, police and firefighters."

"Those fighting to be included in the ideal of equality are not being divisive, those fighting to keep those people out are," he added.
