The American Music Awards is one of the biggest events in the American music industry, bringing together hundreds of musicians and celebrities. So, it’s unsurprising that many attendees used it as an opportunity to add to the pile of politically charged speeches against Trump’s presidential victory.

Green Day have pioneered American punk/rock music for decades, never ceasing to be relentless and ridiculing in the face of political bigotry.
