Now that Donald Trump has officially clinched the nomination of the Republican party, it’s time for the campaign starts planning its musical rollout. There’s been controversy over Trump’s use of “We Are The Champions” by Queen, since the band doesn’t want it associated with the campaign. Putting permission aside for a second, however, “We Are The Champions” doesn’t even feel like the perfect anthem for Trump. And if that isn’t it, what is?

Naturally, we thought it might be interesting to hear what song RNC attendees might choose to best rep Trump—and we got a lot of interesting answers.
