QUEEN's BRIAN MAY Does Not Approve Of DONALD TRUMP's Use Of 'We Are The Champions'

QUEEN guitarist Brian May doesn't want Donald Trump to use the band's music at the controversial Republican presidential hopeful's campaign events.

May made his feelings known after Trump used QUEEN's "We Are The Champions" at his victory rally after the final presidential primaries on Tuesday.

"I've had an avalanche of complaints — some of which you can see in our 'Letters' page — about Donald Trump using our 'We Are The Champions' track as his 'theme' song on USA TV," May wrote on his web site. "This is not an official QUEEN statement, but I can confirm that permission to use the track was neither sought nor given. 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."

In the aforementioned "Letters" section of his site, May doubled down on his unfavorable opinion of QUEEN's association with the billionaire mogul. He wrote: "We certainly have not approved this use of ['We Are the Champions']. I will make sure we take what steps we can to dissociate ourselves from Donald Trump's unsavoury campaign."

May isn't the first rock musician to distance himself from Trump. TWISTED SISTER singer Dee Snider recently revealed that he asked Trump to stop using the band's signature anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It" as the "exit song" at the politician's campaign stops, explaining that he couldn't "get behind a lot of what [Trump is] saying."
