CLEVELAND, OH - Donald Trump strolled into the Republican National Convention looking like the "chosen one" with quite the entrance music.

The songs "We are the Champions" band, Queen, is not about it. The British band says they never gave Donald the "OK" to use the song.

Lead guitarist, Brian May, says the band is seeking legal advice on how to stop Trump from using their anthem for his "unsavory campaign."

May says "it has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a political campaigning tool."

So, add Queen to the list of artists who have told Trump to stop using their tunes for political purposes.

The Rolling Stones said Trump can't always gets what he wants (eh, get it?) . . .  if it means using the band's music

Adele also told the Republican nominee he would be rolling in the deep if he kept starring her songs at his rallies.

Aerosmith said the billionaire could dream on, but was not allowed to use their classic hit.

R.E.M felt like it was the end of the world as we know it, when Donald used their song.

It is a free country, but Neil Smith said Trump had to stop playing "Rockin' in the free world."

Point made: time to find a new playlist, Donald!
