Fans trying to get Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ to No. 1 for Trump’s UK visit

Green Day fans in the U.K. have orchestrated a campaign to get the band's classic 2004 album American Idiot to the top of the charts for President Donald Trump's upcoming state visit.

Trump's visit will take place July 13 (Friday The 13th, no less), and a fan-started Facebook group wants to send a message to the American leader by encouraging everyone to purchase a download of the album between July 6 and 12 to run the album to the No. 1 spot on the U.K charts for his arrival. 

The "Get 'American Idiot' to No.1 for Trump's State Visit" Facebook page has nearly 8,500 followers and a pretty straightforward goal according to their "About" section: "Simple. When President Trump arrives on UK soil for his visit on Friday 13th July 2018, American Idiot will be the official No.1 single. Are you in?"

It's no secret that the gentlemen of Green Day aren't big fans of the current U.S. commander in chief. They started an anti-Trump chant during their AMA's performance and frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has called for the president's impeachment, so it's safe to say the band probably won't be opposed to fans' efforts.
