The GOP Is Up in Arms About This Poster From a Famous Rock Band

Aug 15, 2018  •  Post A Comment

A poster released by a major rock band ruffled the feathers of Republican leaders. The poster, which you can see below, was posted on Twitter by the band Pearl Jam.

The poster, which commemorates the group’s Aug. 13 concert in Missoula, Mont., is the work of bass player Jeff Ament and Bobby Brown, an artist who also goes by the name Bobby Draws Skulls.

The poster depicts the White House on fire, and includes a bald eagle apparently pecking at a carcass — which GOP leaders say represents Donald Trump.

The AP notes that the Missoula show was a “Rock2Vote” concert “aimed to encourage young people to vote in the November midterm elections and support Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, who is from Ament’s hometown of Big Sandy.”

The AP report adds: “The National Republican Senate Committee compared it to the now-infamous photo of comedian Kathy Griffin holding a fake decapitated Trump head.”


  1. Another opportunity for the White House and Republicans to ignore something and it will go away. Instead they just keep helping these things get more publicity and wider recognition.

  2. I would say “So why don’t they cry about it?” but, looks like they’re already on it. Now, if they responded when America needed them to stop the madness and ensure they’d put forth a legitimate candidate, shit like this wouldn’t exist right now

  3. Take a good look at the “carcass” (which is the best description you’ll ever read of Trump’s body) – it has two torsos and no legs!

  4. We need modesty and politeness from our Rock Stars. I mean, would a gentle soul like Ted Nugent ever say anything controversial about a president?

  5. Politicians upset at music artists? This is something that has NEVER happened before. They should seek solace in Tipper Gore or the arms of a Florida Federal Judge
