What are the rules on politicians using pop songs?

Legally, however, US politicians don’t always need direct permission from artists. The campaigns can buy licensing packages from music rights organisations like BMI and ASCAP, that give them legal access to millions of songs. Some, including The Rolling Stones, have opted out of those deals – but many artists are taken by surprise when their music becomes a politician’s theme song, and resort to public protest to distance themselves from policies or personalities they disapprove of.
