Of the many grievous events doled out by 2016 this may be the toughest to accept: Donald Trump is the new President of the United States.
During his campaign, the politician faced ferocious criticism from musicians, whose work he would play - often without permission - at his rallies.
The Republican figure has sparred with The Rolling Stones, who have continuously voiced their disapproval of his co-option of their art.
Having previously used 'Brown Sugar', Donald Trump then utilised 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' at the Republican convention.
The band hit back with a strongly worded statement: "The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump. 'You Can’t Always Get What You Want' was used without the band’s permission."
Winning the race to the White House earlier today, Donald Trump gave his victory speech - and then played... 'You Can't Always Get What You Want'.
Mick Jagger was quick to hit back:
Just was watching the news... maybe they'll ask me to sing 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' at the inauguration, ha!— Mick Jagger (@MickJagger) November 9, 2016
But why stop there, Mick? Maybe you should play 'I Can't Get No Satisfaction', something from the legendary road movie Cocksucker Blues or even 'Star Star' with its chorus: "You're a star fucker..."
