Florida senator and professed EDM-lover Marco Rubio was recently dealt a staggering blow to his presidential campaign. Swedish DJ Axwell slapped him with a cease-and-desist for playing "Something New," a track co-produced with fellow Swede Sebastian Ingrosso.

"Electronic dance music — I'm a fan of," Rubio told supporters at a rally, according to NBC. "We just can't play it cause none of the DJ guys—they all send us letters, 'Don't play my music. I'm Swedish. I don't care about American politics.'"

Rubio's appeal to young voters is apparently a cause for concern within the Democratic establishment—because what better qualification for POTUS is there than being able to name drop David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia in a TMZ interview?

In any case, he'll be looking for "Something New" to play his rallies from now on.
