Thanks to a social media campaign launched in May by a Twitter group calling itself “American Idiot For UK No. 1 When Trump Visits” encouraging Brits to push Green Day’s 2004 hit “American Idiot” to No. 1 on the singles charts, the track is now currently No. 18 on the Official Charts tally, and it also hit No. 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list. The song was originally written about Pres. George W. Bush and features the refrain “Welcome to a new kind of tension/ All across the alien nation/ Where everything isn’t mean to be okay/ Television dreams of tomorrow/ We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.”
