As the balloons fell around Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, the Rolling Stones' "You Can’t Always Get What You Want" echoed through the halls of the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

Many social media watchers thought this was an odd choice. The Rolling Stones themselves months ago requested that Trump stop using their songs for his campaign. 

Trump has used this particular song at least four times during his campaign, Reuters reported. The band said at the time it never gave permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and “requested that they cease all use immediately."

Thursday night, Twitter users expressed their confusion over the song choice. 

'"And we close with "You can't always get what you want." And somewhere Jeb whispers "No, you can't." #RNCinCLE,' wrote @THEJordanBrown.

Another Twitter user @JustinWolfers asked, "IS TED CRUZ DJ'ING THIS THING?"

"No seriously--why do they keep playing ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want”?!?!?!??!" tweeted @JessicaTaylor.
