Elon Musk Slams Green Day’s Anti-Trump Performance

After the famed rock band Green Day decided to spread its anti-Trump agenda by changing one of the lyrics in their song “American Idiot” to target former President Donald Trump, Space X CEO criticized the band for “raging” in favor of the “machine.”

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Musk wrote, “Green Day goes from raging against the machine to milquetoastedly raging for it.”

To please Democrats, Green Day performers changed their original lyric, “I’m not a part of the redneck agenda,” to “I’m not part of the MAGA agenda,” during a concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.

Considering how liberal California is, Green Day’s political move was met with cheers at the Hollywood Bowl.

The rock band’s recent move is not the first time it’s decided to express its anti-Trump sentiments.

In August 2023, after the former president took his mugshot in Fulton County, Georgia, where prosecutors allege that he tried to “overturn” the 2020 presidential election, Green Day released a t-shirt of the iconic mugshot with the word “nimrod” written on Trump’s face.

Fox News pointed out that the band has changed its lyrics in the past to blast Trump and conservatives across America.

In 2019, during the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, the band also replaced its original American Idiot lyric to blast Trump.

During the 2016 American Music Awards, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong chanted, No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA” — a prominent chant among Democrats at protests.

Armstrong’s hatred for Trump has been on full display for years, with the lead singer comparing the former president to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler in 2016.

“The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are. I actually feel bad for them, because they are poor, working-class people who can’t get a leg up,” Armstrong said during an interview with Kerrang! magazine.

Armstrong compared Trump’s comments during the 2016 Republican National Convention, where the then-presidential candidate said, “I alone can fix it,” to Hitler.

Further displaying his disdain for conservatism and the right to life, Armstrong said he would be “renouncing” his American citizenship after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
