With Queen asking Donald Trump not to use “We Are the Champions” again, we asked our readers what song the Republican nominee should choose as he walks out to give his acceptance speech Thursday.  

Frankly, people were a little negative.  

“Darth Vader’s motif from Star Wars,” “Highway to Hell” by AC/DC and “I’m A Freak” by Enrique Iglesias made the list.  

Other contributors offered a line, such as “you’re so vain…” and “clowns to the left, jokers to the right…”

Some clever responses included “’Jump’ by Van Halen and change the words to ‘Trump’,” “Erase Me” by Kid Cudi, “It’s the End of the World” by REM,  “Loser” by Beck and “My Dick” by Mickey Avalon.  

A couple positives for tonight’s speech included “Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta” by the Geto Boys and Katy Perry’s “Firework.”  

Perry’s “Firework” also made an appearance on presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s list, which had more of a mixture of positive and negative responses.  

Lying was a big theme for Clinton responses, which participants got very inventive with.  

Dave Matthews’ “I Did It,” “Liar” by Three Dog Night, “Little Lies” by Fleetwood Mac,” “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” by AC/DC and Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” made the list.  

Pointing to her gender, Beyonce’s “Run the World” was on the list three times, Shakira’s “She Wolf” and “the theme song from Orange is the New Black.”  

Another Clinton submission was “We Will Rock You” by Queen. What are the odds Queen will allow Clinton to play their tunes?
