Todd Rundgren Trolls Trump: (The Man In The) "Tin Foil Hat" (video)

We've loved Todd Rundgren since, well, forever. "Hello, It's Me" is a classic for the ages, and Todd's been deeply involved in music as a writer, performer, producer, and more for decades. Recently, he's happily helmed Ringo Starr's All-Star Band, and now has released a new album.

His new song "Tin Foil Hat", feat. Steely Dan's Donald Fagen, used an anti-Trump video in concert, leading to some walk-outs, and a warning by Rundgren that Trump voters would not enjoy his show and should avoid it.





He's coming down the escalator
With a girl from east of here
He wants to make the country greater
We've got nothing left to fear
Because the man in the tin foil hat
Is sitting on the throne tonight
It kinda feels like coup d'etat
But it's gonna be great, tremendous, amazing and all that
'Cause the man in the tin foil hat
Is tweeting like a teenage girl
He puts the Pluto in plutocrat
It's gonna be a yuge, yuge, yuge new world
He hasn't got the time for losers
Unless they do as he commands
He's writing checks to his accusers
With those tiny little hands
Because the man in the tin foil hat
Is sitting on the throne tonight
It kinda feels like coup de tat
But it's gonna be a yuge yuge yuge new world
'Cause the man in the tin foil hat
Is gonna drain the swamp tonight
And fill it with up with alternative facts
It's gonna be great, tremendous, amazing and all that
'Cause the man in the tin foil hat
Is tweeting like a teenage girl
He puts the Pluto in plutocrat
It's gonna be a yuge yuge yuge new world
Because the man in the tin foil hat
Is sitting on the throne tonight
It kinda feels like coup d'etat
It's gonna be great, tremendous, amazing and all that

We need our artists now more than ever, to give us hope, lift our dreams, and fight the good fight. Hats off to artists like Todd who care and dare to share.
