The Rolling Stones have waived royalties from sales of a charity single in honor of murdered British MP Jo Cox.

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were praised in the House of Commons on Thursday for agreeing that all proceeds from a cover of "You Can't Always Get What You Want," released by the Stones in 1969, should benefit a foundation set up in memory of Cox, who was killed in June.

The updated "You Can't Always Get What You Want" features vocals from David Gray, KT Tunstall and the Kaiser Chiefs' Ricky Wilson. A cross-parliamentary band featuring members of parliament, MP4, also appear on the track.

MP4 member Pete Wishart, a member of the Scottish National Party, revealed the Stones' philanthropic act in the House of Commons on Thursday.

"I'm sure the leader of the house would also like to join me in thanking Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards for waiving their royalties to their piece of 'You Can't Always Get What You Want,' ensuring that even more money goes to the Jo Cox Foundation," he said, the Guardian reported.

Bookmakers William Hill said it will also donate profits from bets placed on the single being Christmas No.1 in the U.K. singles chart.

In the Commons on Thursday, leader of the Labour party Jeremy Corbyn said the single was for a "very important cause" and urged everyone to download it.
