London - The Rolling Stones have become the latest musicians to ask US Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump to stop using their songs in his campaign events.

"The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately," the rockers said in a statement.

Trump has used hits including "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and "Start Me Up" to fire up his supporters at campaign events.

The Stones join a growing number of musicians who have expressed anger at Trump's use of their music at rallies, which have repeatedly been marred by violence.

Everlast last month demanded he stop playing "Jump Around" by the rapper's former band House of Pain, while Neil Young, R.E.M. and Adele have also spoken out.

Trump has an uncontested path to the Republican presidential nomination after his victory in Indiana's primary on Thursday pushed remaining challengers Ted Cruz and then Ohio Governor John Kasich out of the race.
