On the one-year anniversary of Trump's election, ska-punk band Stacked Like Pancakes have premiered their brand new song, “45,” with a hilarious video featuring a terrifyingly accurate cartoon replica of Trump himself.
Produced by Matt Squire (All Time Low, Boys Like Girls, etc.) and co-produced by Eric Taft, this Trump-inspired jam discusses the current state of our country and pairs it with a hilarious caricature of our nation's 45th President, illustrated and animated by Zack White.
“On Nov. 8th, 2016, a nation unified by a desire for change was dismantled by a delusional businessman in the greatest marketing ploy in its history,” says SLP vocalist Kellen McKay. “Featuring a cartoon realization of the 45th President of the United States, this song is a tribute to the true 45: vile, charismatic and unqualified. The ongoing disparaging and hurtful rhetoric of the leader of the Free World is an implication of what we may not be. The quotations found in this song are facts—not fake, not alternative—casting a bright light in an effort to remove our current shadow in solidarity. His own words will live in infamy… whether he tweets it or not.”
Watch the video for “45” below:
Stacked Like Pancakes is made up of Kellen McKay (songwriter, lead vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboard percussion), Zach Foote (bass-trombone), Alec Leventis (trumpet), Michael Busch (lead guitar), Andy Dawson (trombone), Kevin Goren (drums) and Will Lopez (bass guitar, backing vocals).
