Queen: Trump wasn't authorized to use 'We Are the Champions'
NEW YORK - Another musical act is telling Donald Trump to stop using their music.
The classic rock band Queen posted a statement on Twitter on Tuesday saying they never approved Trump's use of "We Are the Champions" during the 2016 Republic National Convention.
Before Melania Trump gave a speech in Cleveland on Monday night, Trump made a brief appearance to introduce her and walked onstage to Queen's 1977 hit song.
The band wrote on Twitter, "An unauthorised use at the Republican Convention against our wishes."
