Green Day's 'American Idiot' back in United Kingdom charts ahead of Trump visit

Now a social-media campaign has launched pleading Brits to troll Trump (and British politician Nigel Farage) by getting Green Day's "American Idiot" to No. 1 on the United Kingdom charts by the time Trump gets there.

Its renewed interest comes as a result of a fan campaign to get the song to UK No.1 in time for President Trump's unofficial visit to the country.

Every so often, a percentage of the British population bands together to ensure that some album or song gets to number one by a particular date. Green Day also depicted Trump as an apocalyptic zombie in the 2017 music video for "Back in the USA". They dubbed the campaign "Make American Idiot Great Again".
