The political statement by the rock band is their second at an awards show this month, after lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong changed the lyrics to the group’s song “American Idiot” during a performance at the MTV Europe Music Awards on November 6. Armstrong changed the lyric “the subliminal mind-f*ck America” to “the subliminal mind Trump America.”
In an interview with Kerrang! magazine in August, Armstrong compared Trump to Adolf Hitler and said he felt “sorry” for those who supported his candidacy.

“The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are,” Armstrong told the magazine. “I actually feel bad for them, because they’re poor, working-class people who can’t get a leg up. They’re pissed off and he’s preyed on their anger. He just said, ‘You have no options and I’m the only one, and I’m going to take care of it myself.’ I mean, that’s f*cking Hitler, man!”
Green Day wasn’t the only act to get political during Sunday night’s show. Model Gigi Hadid did an impression of future First Lady Melania Trump toward the beginning of the ceremony.
Other performers at this year’s AMAs included Justin Bieber, John Legend, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Twenty One Pilots and Shawn Mendes. Bieber and rapper Drake picked up four awards, Rihanna earned three and pop singer Ariana Grande was named Artist of the Year. Former Police frontman Sting was honored with the American Music Award for Merit.
