Anti-Trump Playlist: 49 Songs for the American Resistance
Yep, Here's Our Tweeter-in-Chief
Yep, we've got him for four years, maybe longer (unless his uneven temperament, ethics, or poor health habits get the best of him first).
Donald Trump is a lot of things, but he's sure not boring. Since he's President, we might as well enjoy what we can about having him ruin—I mean RUN—our country. Hopefully, it won't be into the ground.
Enjoy a Trump playlist about the unlikely, unhinged, unprecedented, and unapologetic reality star-in-Chief. We've got some songs to start you out.
How do you feel about Trump as President?
1. "It's the End of the World As We Know It" by R.E.M. (1987)
Trump's a classic story of, "Be careful of what you ask for because you just might get it." Hey, thanks Electoral College; people who didn't vote; poor, white males; evangelicals who sold their souls and yes, old people.
When the Tweeter-in-Chief starts World War III over a personal comment he finds offensive, none of us will care who we voted for anyway.
Tell me with the Rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched.

2. "Smarter Than U" by The Undertones (1978)
Trump will tell you, "I'm, like, a really smart person." He'll also tell you that he knows a lot about hacking, knows more than the generals, and that he alone can fix America. And that's because in his own mind he's Trumptastically
Smarter than you.
Can't you see I'm
Now I've known some very, very, very brilliant people in my life, and none of them needed to proclaim how smart they were. And in a pinch most of them could think of synonyms for "very, very, very."
Trump has to constantly remind us of his superior intelligence, lest we fail to notice. (Look at his grammar and his very, very, very simple word usage. Add to that his short attention span. That should clue you in: he may have business savvy or be gutsy, but he's not the smarty pants that he alleges.)
Hey, Donald, Here Are 30 Synonyms For "Very, Very, Very"
Use One of These
Or Even These
3. "Dangerously" by Charlie Puth (2016)
Trump claimed that the "fake media" was biased against him. In actuality, they were illicit lovers caught in a dangerous relationship of mutual necessity. The media held a lovefest for the reality television star who claimed that all news coverage was positive.
The news outlets failed to fully vet him as a serious candidate. They didn't pursue the issues of conflicts of interest and unfit temperament hard enough or early enough to make a difference.
Now we hear them singing about President Trump, "This is gonna hurt, but I blame myself first, 'cause I ignored the truth."
4. "For the Love of Money" by The O'Jays (1973)
If it weren't for his money, we'd think Trump was just another loud-mouthed bully loser on Twitter who doesn't pay his taxes and says rude things about women, minorities, and people with disabilities. But because of the almighty buck, we give him a free pass.
For the love of money
People will steal from their mother.
For the love of money
People will rob their own brother.
For the love of money.
Pay tribute to what's most important to Trump with a playlist of songs about money.
5. "Cherry Pie" by Warrant (1990)
Donald, who is over 70 years old, doesn't hide that he likes awfully young women. His first marriage was to Ivana, who was only three years his junior. Then he traded her in for a newer model, Marla Maples, who was 17 years younger than he was.
His current wife, Melania, is 24 years his junior. Trump famously said, “You know, it really doesn`t matter what (the media) write as long as you`ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”
He doesn't hide that he likes them young either. In 1992, he told two 14-year old girls, "Wow! Just think—in a couple of years I’ll be dating you." And in the same year, he said about a 10-year old, "I'm gonna be dating her in ten years." Eww. Just eww.
Donald Trump has also made a series of cringe-worthy comments about how hot his daughter, Ivanka, is and how if she weren't his daughter perhaps he'd be dating her. Dude, what's wrong with you? Here's to the creepy old man who likes much younger women.
She's my cherry pie
Put a smile on your face
Ten miles wide
Looks so good
Bring a tear to your eye
Sweet cherry pie.
6. "Another Brick In the Wall" by Pink Floyd (1979)
Here's a shout out to that YUGE, infamous wall the President is going to build, the one that Mexico is supposedly going to pay for it. It's also a shout out to the uneducated. Trump says he LOVES the uneducated. Without him, where would he be now?
We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control.
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey, teachers leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.
7. "I Shot the Sheriff" by Eric Clapton (1973)
Donald Trump alleges he has a gun permit and shoots guns, although I personally can't see him expending the energy. He also calls himself the law and order President. This prompted some people to claim he's been "dog whistling" to the alt-right, stirring up the gun lobby, and taking a firm stance against the Black Lives Matter movement.
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the sheriff, and they say it is a capital offense.
8. "Crazy" by Aerosmith (1993)
Psychologists aptly warned the public before the election that Trump was the poster child for Narcissistic Personality Disorder. NPD is characterized by:
- an inflated sense of self-importance
- a striking lack of empathy
- a fragile self-esteem that is hypersensitive to criticism and
- a compelling need for admiration from others.
Donald Trump nailed it, huh? NPD could help explain his need to Tweet at 3 a.m. and answer every last criticism instead of letting some comments roll off.
Crazy, crazy, crazy, I go crazy.
9. "What Do Ya Think About That" by Montgomery Gentry (2006)
Our 45th President is hypersensitive to criticism, and he isn't one to take advice. He says what he thinks and just blurts out what's on his mind, no filter needed. Verbal diarrhea. Case in point: his bromances with Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un, and Julian Assange.
Some people care about what other people think
Worry about what they say.
Let a little gossip
Coming from a loose lip ruin a perfect day.
Sayin', "Blah, Blah, Blah," just a-jacking their jaws
Got a-letta roll off-a my back.
I don't give a dern what other people think.
What do ya think about that?
10. "Angel In the Centerfold" by J. Geils Band (1981)
For Melania. Because nothing says "First Lady" like racy girl-on-girl photos. Hey, keep it classy, Melania.
In honor of our First Lady, why not make a playlist of songs about angels, everyday angels, and fallen angels?
11. "Americano" by Lady Gaga (2011)
Who can forget Donald Trump chowing down on his taco bowl on Cinco de Mayo? Or referring to Mexicans as criminals and rapists? Isn't this what really bad political cartoons are made of?
I don't speak your, I don't speak your Americano (La-la-la-la-la-la)
12. "I'm A White Boy" by Merle Haggard (1977)
Unnecessarily devisive at best. Not exactly a friend to diversity. His Presidential Cabinet is the definition of the rich OLD (white) boy's club.
But wait. Charlottesville aside, let's be fair. He did have Omarosa on his team for awhile, and she's black. Then Ben Carson's taking care of public housing for us, since Trump assumes he grew up in it and must know a lot about it. Let's leave it at that.
Well, I've said a few things, and I'll admit it
If you wanna get ahead you gotta hump and get it
I'm a white boy lookin' for a place to do my thing.
13. "One Call Away" by Charlie Puth (2016)
Give the unhinged Commander-in-Chief credit. He made a lot of promises. He said he'd make America great again and we'd be SO sick of winning. (Are you tired of us winning yet?) He even pledged to install a complaint hotline for veterans in the White House. (What's that number now?)
Veterans were supposed to have a direct line to Trump and he promised to sacrifice his Twitter time and be "busy at night" personally answering their phone calls. "This will take the place of Twitter," he claimed.
I'm only one call away
I'll be there to save the day.
Superman got nothing on me
I'm only one call away.
14. "Trailerhood" by Toby Keith (2010)
It's not genius, but it'll certainly go down in history. How an alleged billionaire whose bathroom fixtures are 24k gold could capture the trailerhood demographic ... who knows?
The Donald has probably never stepped foot in a genuine mobile trailer home, and he probably couldn't hold a 10-minute conversation with an authentic redneck. But here's a nod to the crowd who lives in single and double-wide manufactured home communities. They keep it real.
It's a little piece of paradise way out here in the woods
There's always something going on down in the trailerhood.
Whether you are a redneck yourself or are simple miffed at them for voting for Trump, blow off a little steam with a playlist of other redneck anthems.
15. "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister (1984)
Both Bernie and Trump tapped into a deep vein of anger, only Trump's was a different shade of irrate, and he was able to mobilize his people to specific action. So far he hasn't been able to deliver on the drain the swamp promise. In the end will the joke be on his voters?
Oh, we're not gonna take it!
No, we ain't gonna take it!
Oh, we're not gonna take it anymore!
16. "Sharp Dressed Man" by ZZTop (1983)
The Billionaire-in-Chief has always enjoyed his own looks. He's claimed that every woman on "The Apprentice" was attracted to him. Seriously.
The word is that women fall all over themselves for comb-overs, mullets and pursed little bow-shaped mouths that spout naughty words ... as long as you dress up the man sporting them in an expensive suit.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
17. "The Man" by Aloe Blacc (2013)
Yep, he's the man alright.
I believe every lie that I ever told
Paid for every heart that I ever stole
I played my cards, and I didn't fold
Well it ain't that hard when you got [no] soul ... .
18. "You're Simply the Best" by Tina Turner (1989)
Can't you envision the Trumpster in his dressing room in front of his full-length mirror singing this little ditty to himself and doing his happy dance as he psychs himself up for his day?
You're simply the best!
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met!
If you can imagine Trump serenading himself, then why not make a playlist of pop, rock, and country songs about narcissism and arrogance?
19. "Always Tell the Voters What the Voter Wants to Hear" by Chumbawamba (1987)
Although this is a British song, when it comes to dirty lying politicians who make empty promises, there are no boundaries.
You want jobs? I've got jobs!
Hospitals? Top of my list!
Tax cuts and platform shoes
For every small businessman
Just give me your vote.
20. "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" by Elton John (1976)
Although he is desperate to have people admire him, Trump is not a man who apologizes. For anything. And there are plenty of transgressions to apologize for.
It's going to take the entire right wing of the conservative Christian movement to get this man into Heaven. Just sayin'.
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over?
Oh, it seems to me
That "sorry" seems to be the hardest word.
If voting for Trump is among your regrets, why not make a playlist of songs about being sorry, regrets, and apologizing.
