'American Idiot' climbs to UK No.1 on charts to mark Trump's visit

Due to the campaign of the British, American Idiot is among the most downloaded songs on the Amazon digital platform and is part of the top 20 most popular songs within the iTunes multimedia content player.

Green Day has yet to publicly comment on the campaign on its social media accounts, although they did share a tweet from Sen.

The song "American Idiot" was originally aimed at former USA president George W Bush.

In related news, fans were able to bring back Green Day's "American Idiot" back in charts. "Keep doing that until midnight on Thursday". It's perhaps unsurprising, considering it came out the year after radio stations pulled the Dixie Chicks' music because Natalie Maines said at a London concert that she was "ashamed" of President George W. Bush.

The campaign even has a catchy hashtag - MAIGA, or Make American Idiot Great Again. Tim Kaine on Friday regarding reports that Trump had planned to gift North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with a CD featuring Elton John's "Rocket Man", a nod to Trump's nickname for the Supreme Leader.
