Trump is Not Queen’s Champion, My Friend

The Rolling Stone reports this week that Queen guitarist Brian May, “has issued a stern statement denouncing the usage” of the band’s famous anthem, “We Are the Champions” by Donald Trump.  The track played while Trump walked onstage after his final victory in the Republican Primaries Tuesday night.

After receiving, “an avalanche of complaints,” May came forward on his website to denounce Trump’s use of the song and confirm that permission was never sought nor given for the song to be used in the first place.

May stated, “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.”  He also responded to a fan on his website saying, “I will make sure we take what steps we can to dissociate ourselves from Donald Trump’s unsavoury campaign.”
