The Growing Playlist of Anti-Donald Trump Songs. Got Any to Add?

A character like Donald Trump inflames all sorts of passions, including (especially?) those who oppose what he stands for. Many in opposition are musicians who have been moved to write songs expressing their displeasure. And even though the Trump administration is only a few days old, there’s a long and ever-growing playlist. Here are a few examples.

1. Mike Dean, “Grab Em By Da Pussy”


2. Arcade Fire – “I Give You Power”


3. Franz Ferdinand, “Demagogue”


4. Eminem, “Campaign Speech”


5. YG & Nipsey Hustle, “Fuck Donald Trump”


6. Rocky Mountain Man, “Mr. Tangerine Man”


7. Gorillaz, “Hallelujah Money”


8. Father John Misty, “Pure Comedy”


9. Moby, “Erupt & Matter”


10. Fiona Apple, “Tiny Hands”

Got any more? Is there a Spotify playlist yet?
