One guarantee of a Trump presidency would be that we’d certainly get at least four years of badass, rebellious punk rock. Actually, it wouldn’t just be limited to punk rock, as Death Cab For Cutie has confirmed with their latest track, “Million Dollar Loan”.
Lyrically, “Million Dollar Loan” deals with a particularly tone deaf moment in Donald Trump’s ascent to the Republican nomination. While campaigning in New Hampshire last year, he attempted to cast himself as a self-made man by claiming he built his fortune with just a “small loan of a million dollars” from his father. Not only has this statement been proven to be wildly untrue, he was so flippant about it. It truly disgusted me. Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he is unworthy of the honor and responsibility of being President of the United States of America, and in no way, shape or form represents what this country truly stands for. He is beneath us. – Ben Gibbard
Over the next 30 days leading up to the election we will be hearing a new Anti-Trump song each day from prominent artists including Jim James, Aimee Man, R.E.M. & more.
