Green Day leads chant at AMAs: ‘No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA’

Green Day took the stage at the 2016 American Music Awards last night to play their single “Bang, Bang” and sound off on their thoughts on a Donald Trump presidency.

“No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA!” they chanted in the middle of the song, off their new album “Revolution Radio.”

The KKK endorsed Trump and have planned a parade celebrating his victory, to be held on Dec. 3 in North Carolina.

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has been vocal in interviews about his feelings on Trump, comparing him to Adolf Hitler in a pre-election interview with Kerrang. He said Trump was taking advantage of the fears of working class people, promising that he, and he alone, could fix it, and that he just couldn’t wait until he was gone.

“It’s interesting. These songs were written before this presidential election,” he told the magazine. “I use a lot of metaphor, and I blow things out, as any good punk rocker should. And it was interesting to see how songs like ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘Say Goodbye‘ went from metaphor to literal, and that’s the part that was tripping me out. It was almost, kind of like, predicting the future, in a way.”

In an Instagram post after the election, Armstrong, who is bisexual, promised he wrote that “our social progress got punched in the face” and warned that “racism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, and xenophobes” are not welcome at Green Day shows.

And to think, Trump thought what the “Hamilton” cast said to vice president-elect Mike Pence was rude. They better settle in for a long four years of criticism.

It looks like the cast of “Hamilton” won’t be apologizing and you might as well not even bother asking that of Green Day.
