I am always in favor of campaigns to help affect the charts, even when they are charts in the U.K. Donald Trump is planning on visiting the United Kingdom on July 13th, and Green Day fans there want to get their hit single “American Idiot” back to the top spot of the charts in honor of Trump’s visit.
This means (if you’re in the U.K.), downloading and streaming the song between Friday, July 6th and Thursday, July 12th. If enough people do it, then the song will hopefully get the boost it needs to retake the charts. If you’re in the states like me, spread the word to any friends you have overseas who could make a difference.
And personally, I wouldn’t mind if we did it out here in the U.S., to send a message to our Shmuck-in-Chief. Stream this pop punk classic below.
