Watch Donald Trump Sing System of a Down’s ‘Chop Suey!’
Who knew the commander-in-chief was such a big fan of metal? In all fairness, President Trump may not actually be a headbanger, but thanks to the latest edition of "Metal Trump," where an intrepid YouTuber manipulates his speeches to sync up with some of the heaviest tunes around, he looks like he's a big fan of "Chop Suey!," the 2001 hit single by System of a Down. It's not an entire rendering of the track, but enough to get the point across.
Trump has been in the news lately when it comes to metal, with Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe speaking out against the President.
“We were touring overseas before Trump got elected and people were constantly asking, ‘What are you going to do if he gets elected?’ Everybody was like, ‘That’s not going to happen,’ and oh, how wrong we were,” Blythe recalled.
Prophets of Rage guitarist Tom Morello spoke out recently as well about Trump.
"I come from Trump country — the small town in Illinois where I come from, Democrats don't even run, and the options [available] to people are [either] you join the Army, you work at Walmart [or] you sell meth. They looked at a broken system, and Trump provided some of the easiest answers, which is it's the Mexicans' fault, it's the Muslims' fault — that sort of racist way of dividing and conquering the working class that has had success before and certainly has had success with this demagogue."
