Earth, Wind & Fire just joined a growing list of musicians — including Adele and Queen — unhappy with the use of their music without prior consent.

“Another unauthorized use (September) at the Republican Convention, against our wishes,” Earth, Wind & Fire tweeted from their verified account on Tuesday, referencing the RNC house band’s cover of their hit single “September,” which played on the convention floor as the Alaskan delegation disputed the allocation of its 28 votes to Donald Trump.

On Tuesday morning, Queen also tweeted their displeasure with the Republican presidential nominee, blasting Trump for using “We Are the Champions” as his entrance music at the Cleveland-based convention without first clearing it with the band.

“An unauthorized use at the Republican Convention against our wishes,” Queen’s tweet reads.
