During their live show on ABC, rock band Green Day took a swipe at Trump and his supporters by changing the lyrics of their song “American Idiot.”
While performing during ABC's New Year's Eve special, Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong changed the lyrics of the group's song “American Idiot” to “I'm not part of the MAGA agenda.”
The song originally says: “I'm not part of the redneck agenda.”

Per Huff post:
Green Day adapted one of their most popular songs to attack Donald Trump and his supporters during a televised New Year's Eve performance on Sunday night.
“I'm not part of the MAGA agenda,” singer Billie Joe Armstrong said during “American Idiot” on ABC's “Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.”
The line is usually “I'm not part of the redneck agenda.”
The band has performed the exchange before, including during the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas in 2019, when Trump was in the White House. In 2016, they also chanted “No Trump, No Ku Klux Klan, No Fascist USA” during a performance of “Bang Bang” at the American Music Awards weeks after Trump won the election.
This is not the first time Armstrong has attacked Trump.
In 2016, during an interview, he claimed that Trump “is not my president” and continued to express how much he hates Trump.
