US President Donald Trump is to visit the UK on July 13th, after previously cancelling a trip earlier this year to open a new US embassy amid claims he would face mass protests.  Well, hate to break it to him but this visit is shaping up to also have a number of protests.  Massive ones.

When Trump arrives in the UK this week for meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen, he will be met with planned protests, including one whose campaign’s official motto is: “Make American Idiot Great Again.”

Organizers have planned to take Green Day anti-establishment anthem, “American Idiot” and play it so many times that the song will be the No. 1 single in the UK by the time Trump arrives. The incessant downloads started July 6 and will continue through the day before his visit.

The good news? The plan appears to be working.  “American Idiot” is currently the best-selling song on Amazon in the UK.

Here the words to Green Day’s “American Idiot”.  You decide if the Brits got it right.

“Don’t wanna be an American idiot
Don’t want a nation under the new media
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind-f*ck America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn’t meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow
For that’s enough to argue

Well maybe I’m the f****t America
I’m not a part of a redneck agenda
Now everybody do the propaganda
And sing along to the age of paranoia

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn’t meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow
For that’s enough to argue

Don’t wanna be an American idiot
One nation controlled by the media
Information Age of hysteria
It’s calling out to idiot America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn’t meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow
For that’s enough to argue”
