Republicans are notorious for using artists' music without their permission, sometimes hijacking songs critical of Republican values. During his 1984 presidential campaign, Ronald Reagan tried to use Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A." – somehow missing its critique of American exceptionalism and militarism. Springsteen said no, but that didn't stop Reagan from quoting it in a stump speech.

Cut to 2015, and Donald Trump has set his presidential announcement to Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" – a pretty clear indictment of George Bush the first – prompting the Canadian rocker to chastise the Donald and endorse Bernie Sanders.

To help other Republicans who may be struggling to choose an appropriate campaign song, we've put together a list of tracks that would work well for some of the 2016 presidential hopefuls.
