Reclaim Australia’s “patriotic playlist” dwindling as John Farnham also demands they stop playing his songs
John Farnham has asked for "You're the Voice" to stop being used as an anthem at anti-immigration rallies

It seems Reclaim Australia are running out of music options for their protests, with more artists demanding they remove their songs from the organisation’s “patriotic playlist.”

Yesterday we brought you the news that Cold Chisel front-man and Aussie music legend Jimmy Barnes was calling for “love and tolerance in these modern times”, denouncing the use of his songs at anti-Islamist rallies.

Now, the Khe Sanh singer has been joined by fellow Aussie legend John Farnham and his manager John Wheatley who say that they’re “disgusted” by Reclaim Australia’s use of his hit The Voice and Lee Kernagen’s ode to the Anzacs.

In a statement, Whispering Jack and his manager John Wheatley said, “I have successfully pulled down the use of You’re the Voice from Youtube that these guys have been using. The use was disgusting as it showed the decapitation of those poor souls who lost their lives.”
