Can You Pick The Line From A Queen Song Given The Line Before It?

Donald Trump used “We Are The Champions/We Will Rock You” at campaign rallies when he was running for the Republican nomination in 2016. On June 8, Brian May posted a message on his website, stating, “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. Our music embodies our own dreams and beliefs, but it is for all who care to listen and enjoy.”

The song fit Trump’s theme of “winning,” and knowing May had no legal ground to stop him from using it, he continued to do so, including on July 18 when he used it as his entrance music on opening night of the Republican Convention in Cleveland. “We’re going to win so big,” he said when he took the microphone.
