Green Day’s Anti-Trump Chant Was A Surprise To AMA Producers

No fascist USA!” — that was also a reference to punk legends MDC’s “Born To Die.” And now TMZ reports that the band didn’t include the chant when they rehearsed their performance. When they chanted it during the show’s live broadcast, ABC executives were “completely off-guard.”
