Green Day claim to be punks, but they aren’t. They’re tragic establishment con artists who use their celebrity status to push propaganda on the normal people of America. But it doesn’t work any more – and the attempt by activists in Britain to make ‘American Idiot’ the chart’s No.1 during Trump’s visit won’t work either.
I’m sick of celebrity worship. Celebrities think they’re important, they’re not. And the attempt by activists to get the song to Number 1 will not have the effect they hope for.
