Trump in hot water over use of Queen song 4



View Profile

No matter how you feel about Donald Trump, everyone can agree that he’s an amazingly polarising figure. Mr Trump may have preemptively secured the Republican Nomination for the US Presidency, but he also might be having his day in court.

Mr Trump is well known for threatening lawsuits for slander, but he might find himself served with papers very soon. He’s in trouble with another music act, this time, the iconic band Queen, for using music without permission.

Queen joins Neil Young, R.E.M., Aerosmith, Adele, and The Rolling Stones as musicians that took umbrage with Mr Trump’s use of their music taking to Twitter with a profanity-laced tweet.  After received a significant number of complaints following Mr Trump using their 1977 rock anthem We are the Champions during the final Republican primaries, band founder Brian May, posted on his website that “permission to use the track was neither sought nor given”.

Trump hasn’t, at this time, responded to Brian May’s statement but if it’s anything like his response to Neil Young, Trump didn’t like the song anyway.

Should the bands take action or be happy Trump is using their songs?  Should someone in his organisation ask permission?

    omg, trump is the generation of the stones etc, whats wrong with mick jagger and co? they must be getting older and stupid. People play their songs anywhere, whats their beef with donald. Personally i cannot understand how donald can take so much nastiness from so many horrible people and still have power in spirit.
    i am a rolling stone fan from their first song they put out but not impressed with their actions over their song we all play everywhere. GO DONALD, love you.

    So Donald is a Hitler. What are your thoughts on the Bush family and now the Clintons. The rising popularity of Donald goes to show how disenchanted the American voters are with the state of politics in their country. American trends generally draw breath in Australia five years later. Can’t wait.
