Queen want Trump to stop using their song

dpadpa 10/06/2016

Queen have joined other bands to say they haven't given Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump permission to use their songs at his rallies.

Rock band Queen is weighing steps to prevent Republican candidate Donald Trump from using their song We Are the Champions at his rallies.

"Permission to use the track was neither sought nor given," founding band member Brian May wrote on his website.

Trump most recently played the song ahead of a speech after the final Republican primaries on Tuesday evening.

"Regardless of our views on Mr Trump's platform, it has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a political campaigning tool," May said.

"Our music embodies our own dreams and beliefs, but it is for all who care to listen and enjoy."

Queen is not the only band to complain about use of their songs during political rallies. This year alone, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Adele, REM, and Neil Young have complained about the use of their music by Trump.
