Theresa May's choice to come onstage to the Rolling Stones gave lots of Twitter users no satisfaction and they weren't shy about letting her know.
It was May's first time talking to the Tory conference as Prime Minister and she received a rapturous reaction as she walked onstage to the Rolling Stones' classic Start Me Up.
It's just a pity the rest of Twitter wasn't quite so impressed:
Rather than Start Me Up it could have been Maggie May, lets be honest #CPC16— Grundy (@GrundyOxford) October 5, 2016
Teresa May walks onto stage at party conference to Rolling Stones 'Start Me Up'. I'm sure she's made many a grown man cry— Sara Raimondo (@saralourai) October 5, 2016
Sorry, did Theresa May just walk out to "Start Me Up" by the Stones? Does Keith know about this?— George Welsby (@George_Welsby) October 5, 2016
'Start Me Up' because the Tories aren't really interested in anyone born after 1960— Peter Kruger (@AnyoneButThat) October 5, 2016
Her choice of exit music caught the attention of some:
Theresa May enters with Rolling Stones' Start me up; leaves with ELO Mr Blue Sky..."Seize the day," her final rallying call #CPC16— Dipesh Gadher (@DipeshGadher) October 5, 2016
Although for some, far more important than the politics was the music:
Reminder: 'Start Me Up' is like (almost) all post-'72 Stones, utterly awful and without merit. A soulless, sexless stomp of irrelevance.— Mayer Nissim (@mayernissim) October 5, 2016
