In their performance tonight at the American Music Awards, Green Day dropped some truth bombs on the crowd.

A chorus of "No Trump! No KKK! No Fascist USA!" was part of their performance. Amen, Green Day. Amen.

Rolling Stone reports:

Green Day stopped by the American Music Awards to perform their hit song "Bang Bang." The track appears as the lead single off the band's recently released Revolution Radio.

In front of rapidly changing visuals of graffiti, Green Day powered through their stirring, raucous new single. In the middle of the song, the band broke into "Born to Die" by Austin punk group MDC. The song has become a recent popular chant for students protesting Donald Trump's presidency, changing the final lines to "No Trump/No KKK/No fascist USA."

Just what my soul needed tonight.
