Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"Queen are seeking to prevent Donald Trump from using “We Will Rock You” after the US president featured the song in its entirety in a campaign ad.

Mr Trump’s Twitter account shared the video, which consists of a montage of photos from some of his past rallies, on Wednesday.

“We Will Rock You”, Queen’s hit dating back to 1977, plays in full during the two-minute clip.

A representative for the band told The Independent that “Queen did not agree to the use of the song” and that ”the band’s music publishers are removing it”.

A representative told BuzzFeed reporter Adam B Vary, who tweeted about the issue, that Queen “has already entered into a process to call for non-use of Queen song copyrights by the Trump campaign”." (More)

Yeah I can't imagine Queen -- and pretty much all sane people -- wanting Trump using their shit.
