Green Day's AMA Performance, a Glorious Trigger For The Alt-Right

Some times I wish I was more of a “pop culture” music style writer. I’d be able to go to sleep at reasonable hours, make more money, and live a carefree life of mainstream materialism - getting excited about shit that doesn’t usually matter. Unfortunately I'm just not wired to be able to handle that level of mediocrity and celebrity worship. So when I saw “Green Day” trending on Twitter a couple of days ago I sighed and thought to myself, “Way to go, America. Keeping a 20-year old irrelevant punk band alive.” Little did I know that America was actually doing my homework for me - trying to tell me that Green Day had actually slipped something into their American Music Award performance that’s more relevant than ever. During their performance of their latest song "Bang Bang," which is a mockery of alt-right kids, they launched into an anti-Trump chant... (uh oh - alt-right trigger warning...)
