The band Queen is not happy that Donald Trump used their song again.

On Monday night at the Republican National Convention, just before Trump walked out on stage, Queen’s “We Are The Champions” started playing.

Not happy about this use, the band’s official Twitter account tweeted that the music was used without their approval. (RELATED: Queen Wants Trump To Stop Using “We Are The Champions”)

“An unauthorized use at the Republican Convention against our wishes – Queen.”


This is not the first time that members of the band have spoken out about the presumptive Republican nominee’s use of their music. Last month, guitarist Brian May posted on his website that they would never give Trump the permission to use the song as they don’t want it used as a “political campaigning tool.”

“This is not an official Queen statement, but I can confirm that permission to use the track was neither sought nor given,” he said. “We are taking advice on what steps we can take to ensure this use does not continue. 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.”
