Listen to R.E.M.’s ‘World Leader Pretend’ Re-Released for ’30 Days 30 Songs’ Trump-Free America Campaign


Iconic American alternative rock band R.E.M. are no longer together. They haven’t been since 2011. But, that didn’t stop the band from contributing an old song to the 30 Days 30 Songs campaign for a Trump-free America a couple of hours ago.

The track is R.E. M’s ‘World Leader Pretend‘, and was originally relased on the band’s album Green back in 1988.

It is now song number 9 in a campaign running to convey the message that a President Trump would be an unmitigated disaster.

Listen to it below.
