Trump triumphantly walked onstage as the group's "We Are The Champions" played in the background.
Queen disapproved of the usage of their song as Trump walked onstage, tweeting the following on Tuesday.
An unauthorised use at the Republican Convention against our wishes - Queen— Queen (@QueenWillRock) July 19, 2016
Other notable figures also expressed their dismay over the use of "We Are The Champions" at the convention, criticizing the GOP for its treatment of LGBT citizens but still playing music from Queen, whose former lead singer Freddie Mercury passed away from AIDS in 1991 and remains a massive LGBT icon.
Trump has previously been criticized by Queen for using their song. On June 7, the anthem was played as Trump walked out to his victory party at the Trump National Golf Club in New York, according to ABC News. Brian May, guitarist for the band, shared a message on his website in response to the previous Trump incident, saying "it has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a campaigning tool." null
