Green Day slams Donald Trump during American Music Awards performance


LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21 — Green Day took aim at President-elect Donald Trump Sunday during their performance at the American Music Awards.

“No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong sang after the band broke off from their lead single “Bang Bang” off their recently released album Revolution Radio.

The moment came as Green Day launched into Austin punk band MDC’s song “Born to Die,” a track used during protests of Trump. The final lines were changed to include Trump’s name.

This is the second time Green Day have mentioned Trump during a performance having recently performed during the MTV EMA Awards singing “Can you hear the sounds of hysteria? The subliminal Trump America,” during a rendition of their 2004 hit, “American Idiot.”

Revolution Radio represents the band’s first album in four years. Green Day is preparing to embark on a 24-date tour in support of the project starting in March 2017.
