What happens when one of the wildest rock bands in hair metal history reunites (sort of) for a world tour, right about the time that an arrogant ogre is elected (again, sort of) president? They take to the stage with a bigass piñata shaped like Donald J. Trump himself and let their fans beat the living shit out of it.
Frontman Axl Rose reportedly invited fans onstage with the band and the piñata during a recent show in Mexico City:
“Let’s bring up some people and give them a fucking stick. Express yourselves however you feel.”
Fans were happy to oblige, taking out their frustration with the xenophobic President-elect in a way that had to feel really fucking therapeutic.
Gn’R aren’t the only musicians speaking out about their distaste for the washed-up reality TV star. Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day let loose at the American Music Awards, taking inspiration from an old John Brown Anti-Klan Committee publication and chanting:
“No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!”
Legendary songstress Cher has been famously and hilariously outspoken against Trump since early in his campaign.
Why do Republicans

Sweet little Hannah Montana shed her gee-whillikers sweetness when Miley Cyrus posted an angry rant against Trump on Instagram — complete with tear-streaked selfie, natch.
Yes . That is a tear rolling down my cheek dripping off the end of my nose….. This makes me so unbelievable scared and sad…. Not only for our country but for animals that I love more than anything in this world…. My heart is broken into a 100000 pieces ….. I think I may vomit …. That picture on the right is so disturbing…. YOU are not destiny! It is not your job to decide when a living things life is over …. & YOU DT ARE NOT GOD NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU THINK YOU ARE!!! (& if he doesn't think he is "God" he thinks he is the fucking chosen one or some shit! We're all just fucking jam between his rich ass toes! Honestly fuck this shit I am moving if this is my president! I don't say things I don't mean! )
Jello Biafra reworked the Dead Kennedys classic Nazi Punks Fuck Off and has been singing Nazi Trumps Fuck Off instead, and in a pre-election interview, punk percussionist Mike Dillon made his feelings about Trump crystal clear:
“I don’t think highly of him. He’s a misogynistic pig, a racist bastard.”
