Apparently, YouTube stars The Piano Guys covered Platten's "Fight Song" as a mashup with "Amazing Grace" at the inaugural ball this past Friday. And while everyone in attendance might've enjoyed The Piano Guys' performance, it appears Rachel Platten did not.
The 35-year-old songwriter fired off a few tweets, in which she claimed no one asked her for permission to use "Fight Song" at Trump's ball.
It didn't take long for The Piano Guys to respond to Rachel Platten's tweets, and it appears they made it quite clear they weren't "endorsed" by the "Fight Song" author.
The Utah-based group wrote,
Now, you might remember "Fight Song" was Hillary Clinton's campaign song, which throws a whole new element into this song stealing situation.

Apparently, though, Rachel Platten isn't the only songwriter who had her music used without permission Friday night.
The Piano Guys reportedly covered One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful," and songwriter Savan Kotecha expressed his "disappointment."
