Green Day Rocks The American Music Awards With Anti-Trump Chant On Live TV

“No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!”

Donald Trump is coming under fire again, this time at the American Music Awards

Green Day’s blistering version of its new song “Bang Bang” included an extra line aimed at the president-elect: “No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!” 

The moment took place on Sunday night, a little more than two minutes into the performance (see the video above). The chant was a play on “Born To Die” by MDC, which featured the repeated line, “No War! No KKK! No fascist USA!”  

“Bang Bang” is on Green Day’s latest album, “Revolution Radio.” 

The performance came just days after the cast of Broadway’s “Hamilton” delivered a message to vice-president-elect Mike Pence, who was in the audience on Friday night. The next day, Trump fired off several tweets attacking the cast and demanding an apology. He also sent out an angry tweet after a “Saturday Night Live” skit starring Alec Baldwin mocked him.  

At the time of this writing, Trump has not yet responded to Green Day, but Us Weekly found a tweet from 2010 saying he enjoyed the Broadway show based on the band’s concept album, “American Idiot.”
