Rapper Eminem stole the show at the BET Hip Hop Awards yesterday by trashing President Donald Trump in a blistering a capella freestyle. Eminem took aim at Trump’s deplorable stances on issues like racism and immigration as well as The Donald's beefs with Senator John McCain, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the rest of the NFL.
At the end of his rhyming rant, Eminem told fans it was time to take sides in the feud. "And any fan of mine who's a supporter of his/ I'm drawing in the sand a line/ You're either for or against/ And if you can't decide who you like more and you're split/ On who you should stand beside/ I'll do it for you with this," he aid while giving the finger to the camera.
And he's not the only one turning music into political attacks. Here are 5 other musicians who have released anti-Trump songs.
1. YG and Nipsey Hussle, 'FDT'
During the 2016 campaign, rappers YG and Nipsey Hussle teamed up to sway voters against voting for Trump with the anthemic 'FDT' (i.e. 'Fuck Donald Trump').
2. Death Cab for Cutie, 'Million Dollar Loan'
Less than a month before the election, alt-rockers Death Cab for Cutie released 'Million Dollar Loan,' a song named after the "small loan" that Trump received from his father to launch a business empire.
3. Green Day, 'Troubled Times'
Just days before Trump's inauguration, the punk rock trio Green Day skewered his vision of America in the surreal video for the song 'Troubled Times.'
4. Fiona Apple, 'Tiny Hands'
The singer-songwriter harped on one of Trump's many insecurities by mocking his anatomy in 'Tiny Hands,' a song that plays a quote from Trump's notorious Access Hollywood tape while Apple sings, 'We don't want your little hands / anywhere near our underpants."
5. Gorillaz, 'Hallelujah Money'
The English 'virtual band' offered up a subtler criticism of Trump's America last spring with the release of the single 'Hallelujah Money,' featuring British poet and musician Benjamin Clementine.
