Green Day's 'American Idiot' Tops UK Charts Ahead Of Trump's Visit

Green Day's Grammy-nominated hit "American Idiot" is now working itself back into the top of the British music charts - 14 years after its initial release.

The song is now the best selling song on Amazon in the UK.

"Trump is scheduled to visit the United Kingdom from Thursday through Sunday as he meets with Prime Minister Theresa May and other British officials". Its inspired slogan: Make American Idiot Great Again. The song is also now No. 1 on the UK Amazon chart.

"American Idiot" was the title track of Green Day's punk rock opera album, which was a No. 1 smash in both the United States and the U.K.in 2004.

Trump had reportedly asked British Prime Minister Theresa May to guarantee there would be no protests during his visit. It's also at No. 18 on Britain's Official Singles Chart; according to Chart Data, it's been bouncing in and out of the Top 10 and Top 20 ranking. Since then there have been numerous attempts to get tunes as varied as Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast" to the themes from "Star Wars" and "Pokemon" to the top of British charts in time for Christmas.

"You'll recall that "American Idiot" was a rallying cry that blasted the George W. Bush era, though it's applicable to all future American idiots, "writes Vulture".

"I'm not a part of a redneck agenda, now everybody do the propaganda and sing along to the age of paranoia", the song's lyrics say.

"We're big Green Day fans and this song seemed flawless", the protest organizers Charlton Roberts and Hurst Geoffrey told INSIDER. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, on Friday joking that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would send the U.S. a copy of their album.
