Rachel Platten Was *Not* Happy The Piano Guys Covered Her Song at Trump's Inaugural Ball

It's not HIS fight song.

If you associate Rachel Platten's empowering anthem "Fight Song" with Hillary Clinton, you're not alone. The hit became the unofficial theme song of Clinton's campaign and a rallying cry for her supporters.

That's why it was so disconcerting when The Piano Guys covered the song at one of Trump's inaugural balls Friday night. Platten has responded to the (unauthorized) cover, and turns out, she was just as confused and displeased as anyone.

The Piano Guys—who rose to YouTube popularity for covers of classic songs and pop hits—performed a mash-up of "Fight Song" and "Amazing Grace" at the Freedom Ball, but insisted that the song choice had "nothing to do with Hillary Clinton or politics."

They did admit, however, that Platten did not endorse the use of her song...so at least there's that?
