Neil Young has long expressed his disapproval over Donald Trump's use of his music at campaign rallies, but now he is officially taking legal action against the U.S. President.

The Canadian singer-songwriter — who obtained American citizenship earlier this year — took to his Neil Young Archives website to post a document of his legal complaint, which was filed in the U.S. Court for the Southern District of New York today, Young's attorney confirmed to CBC Music.

According to the files on his site, Young is suing Trump for copyright infringement, noting that Young "in good conscience cannot allow his music to be used as a 'theme song' for a divisive, un-American campaign of ignorance and hate."
