The rage, acrimony, and confusion expressed in the original compositions and songs very effectively reflect the reaction of the world to Trump and his onslaught of negative legislation and representation over 20 years later.
“A bleaker, less holy voice shouts its orders to the masses” was written for the song “Vertigo” in 1992 but could just have easily been written about today’s headlines.
