    Green Day introduced a song at the AMA’s last night by doing a little riff on MDC’s “Born to Die” where they chant “No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA!” — a clip of the performance can be found below.

    TMZ reports that the addition came as a surprise to the show’s producers.

    I wish I could say something but silence is fine.

    It took the election of another American Idiot to bring BJA back to life. He even dusted off the old black jacket and red tie!

    As usual, those TMZ comments are the reason I constantly question why I don't drink.

    Bashing Trump in front of a bunch of Hollywood Liberals is so punk rock!

    It may have not been in the script. But there's no way the producers weren't expecting something like this (and probably hoping)

    This is what Green Day posted on Facebook yesterday morning.

    Tonight is THE NIGHT! The 2016 American Music Awards are at 8/7c on ABC and trust us, you're going to want to see this. #AMAs

    Hopefully with Trump we can expect more amazing music from Green Day. They write well when they're fired up, and not riding through the motions (Like everything Post AI).

    Cuz Conservatives NEVER bitch about anything. Other than the boogeyman coming to take away their guns and jesus memorabilia.

    Memories are nice, but that's all they are. Prestigious

    You do realize this was nationally televised, so the audience is a bit bigger right?
    How dare they stand up to something!!!

    Well Trump did promise to "Make Green Day Punk Again" or something like that.

    They've been asleep the last 8 years of war under progressive leadership, how brave of them.

    No they haven't? They've come out and talked about things they don't agree with during the Obama administration as well.
