Did Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger float the possibility of the Rolling Stones playing at Donald Trump’s inauguration?
Upon the conclusion of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory speech in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the campaign closed with the Stones’ iconic song, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”
“You can’t always get what you want… But if you try sometime you find… You get what you need,” the song’s lyrics remind us.
Shortly thereafter, Jagger took to social media to respond:
Just was watching the news… maybe they'll ask me to sing 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' at the inauguration, ha!

Sounds like Mick doesn’t want to be left out of the fun come January 20, 2017, though it’s surely a tongue-in-cheek remark.
Of course, some anti-Trump social media users just could not hide their sour grapes, offering alternative song suggestions:

@MickJagger Can you sing “Get Off of My Cloud” instead?
