President Donald Trump’s proposed visit to the British Prime Minister Theresa May in the U.K. is going to be filled with dramas.
The Brits are trolling Trump by getting Green Day’s “American Idiot” to No. 1 on the U.K. charts by the time Trump gets there. Its inspired slogan: Make American Idiot Great Again.
As of Saturday, “American Idiot” has shot back up to the Top 10 on Britain’s iTunes and Amazon charts; on Monday, Chart Data reported that it has reentered the Top 20 on Britain’s official singles chart midway through the charting week, with just a few days to go until Trump touches down on British soil. 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. Now can you hear the sound of hysteria?
Stand by…the chart begins at 00:01 on Friday and so do we
