FEATURE: How the music scene responded to Donald Trump becoming the US president!

By now, pretty much everyone in the world is aware of the outcome from last night’s US presidential election day, seeing perhaps one of the most visceral and venomous campaigns seen in the history of US politics. Even most of those who had voted for winner Donald Trump to become the country’s 45th president had been surprised (those voting for Trump pleasantly so, of course) by the result, especially seeing as though the candidate has pretty much no political experience until he ran for office.

Many people, both within the US and across the rest of the globe, have made their thoughts and opinions on the results largely known, and that certainly includes the music scene that we and you – the reader – are a part of.

Take a look at what many bands, artists, and musicians think and feel to the outcome of Donald Trump become the 45th president of the United States of America.
