Queen force removal of Donald Trump “We Will Rock You” campaign tweet
Earlier this month, Nickelback made headlines once again after President Donald Trump used their track "Photograph" in a meme against Joe Biden. The band quickly pulled the copyright card, getting Twitter to remove the clip from the President's Twitter. Now, it looks like Queen have taken similar action after Trump's unauthorized used of their track "We Will Rock You."
On Oct. 9, Trump tweeted a clip featuring footage from a rally. The track playing in the background is Queen's 1977 timeless hit "We Will Rock You."
A representative for the band tells Buzzfeed News that the song's use was unauthorized.
Within hours of the video surfacing, the band had "already entered into a process to call for non use of Queen song copyrights by the Trump campaign. This is ongoing.”
This isn't the first time Trump has used Queen's music without prior authorization. He used the same track during his 2016 campaign.
