Green Day Delivers A Powerful Protest Anthem In Time For The Inauguration

Green Day has been speaking out against Donald Trump and his affiliated bigotry since last summer, when they changed up “American Idiot”s lyrics for a MTV Europe Music Awards from “The subliminal mind-fuck America” to “The subliminal mind-Trump America.” More denouncements followed, including frontman Billie Joe Armstrong comparing Trump’s strategies to Hitler’s. And now, they’re hitting at his inauguration with a new track and blistering video that depicts—among other things—The Donald with KKK masks for fangs.

Behold “Troubled Times.”

Employing archival footage of the Civil Rights movement, the video reminds us we’ve fought prejudice before. We can do it again. And we will make America great again.
