We all had that emo or punk phase in middle school or high school — maybe for some it wasn't just a phase. No matter the case, Donald Trump is ready to bring us back to the early 2000s with his new hit single. Music artist Nick Lutsko collaborated with the Republican nominee and video company Super Deluxe to release a new punk single based on Trump's tweets. Well, the collaboration actually involved turning Trump's tweets from Aug. 14 — which the video described as "sad, whiny tweets about Hillary Clinton and the media" — into a punk song called "Emo Trump."
Some of the tweets they used for the song include one in which Trump suggests that his "rallies aren't covered properly by the media. They never discuss the real message and never show crowd size and enthusiasm." Oh, Trump.
The Republican nominee's rallies have certainly gotten their fair share of media coverage. While it's fair to say that the media may have missed the real message of his rallies on occasion, for instance, by not always treating Trump as a serious threat to American democracy, there has been plenty of coverage of Trump's real message, like his continuous fearmongering and dangerous rhetoric about Mexicans, Muslims, black Americans, and women.
The video that goes along with Trump's new song includes his Twitter profile with a bit of a makeover — namely, he has black side-swept hair à la Pete Wentz back in his 2005 Fall Out Boys days. The video shows baby hands typing up the messages that the Republican nominee has shared to his account (baby hands, geddit?).
Really, though, if you've been missing the good old days of Fall Out Boy, Blink-182, the All-American Rejects, and whatever emo or punk music you have on your original iPod mini, check out this new Trump jam. It's everything you didn't know you needed from the Republican candidate, which is saying a lot considering we've already gotten so much from him over the past-400 plus days that he's been in our daily news cycle.
This song really makes you want to "open up this pit," as some former mosh pit enthusiasts might say. And if nothing else, Trump having his own song could definitely help him out at his events where he's often caught playing the music of artists who don't want to be associated with him. The Trump campaign has used songs from the Rolling Stones, whose spokesman told Time, "the Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately."
Adele was also a victim of Trump's campaign playlist, and her spokesperson said in a statement to CNN, "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning." And there are plenty more musicians who have suggested the same as Trump plays their tunes for large crowds of enthusiastic supporters.
It seems that the GOP candidate might be better off playing his own jams from now on, and now he has his own emo song to help him do just that!
