    30 Days, 30 Songs is an independent website that will release one song per day from October 10 until Election Day. It is produced by the creators of 90 Days, 90 Reasons, which sought to motivate voters to give President Obama a second term, and it features work from artists across the country.

    As artists, we are united in our desire to speak out against the ignorant, divisive, and hateful campaign of Donald Trump. We will not be duped by Mr. Trump’s rhetorical contortions, by his pandering and lies and false promises. He has shown the content of his character time and time again, and the very fact of his candidacy is a blight on the nation. His words incite hatred and celebrate inequity. Most troubling of all, over the past year, the country has become inured to the towering vileness of his rhetoric and deeds, his attacks on women, Mexican-Americans, Muslims, and those with disabilities. But we have to remember these acts, and act against them. In the words of Cornell West, we cannot become "well-adjusted to injustice.”

    In contrast to Trump’s demagoguery and complete lack of qualifications and temperament, Hillary Clinton is a calm, intelligent, empathetic professional with more relevant experience — as First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State — than any candidate in the modern era. For those of you who find Clinton uninspiring, that is fine and understandable. But you don’t have to fall in love with a candidate. This is not a romance. We are electing the leader of the most powerful nation on earth. This is a decision for the head, not the heart. Hillary Clinton will keep the country on an even keel, and will build on the achievements of President Obama.

    Donald Trump would subject the country to the same hateful cycle of drama and madness that we have been assaulted with for the last year. He will continue to demonize minorities and objectify women. He will throw the economy into chaos and gut environmental regulations. He will devastate our standing in the world.

    It’s not enough to sit on the sidelines on this one.

    We ask that you register to vote and volunteer and share these songs of protest. You are a steward of this democracy and your actions shape it at every turn. When you speak out, you shape our democracy and when you remain silent, you shape it as well. Do not let your voice go unheard. Join us and demand an America of tolerance, respect, and equality. Demand an America that moves toward racial, economic, and environmental justice.

    We hope these songs provide both motivation and soundtrack to doing the right thing these last few weeks before this most pivotal election. Consider this the music by which you will register to vote and cast your ballot for Hillary Clinton, the only candidate who can prevent the apocalypse that would be Donald Trump as president.

    "Lyrically, ‘Million Dollar Loan’ deals with a particularly tone deaf moment in Donald Trump's ascent to the Republican nomination. While campaigning in New Hampshire last year, he attempted to cast himself as a self-made man by claiming he built his fortune with just a ‘small loan of a million dollars’ from his father. Not only has this statement been proven to be wildly untrue, he was so flippant about it. It truly disgusted me. Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he is unworthy of the honor and responsibility of being President of the United States of America, and in no way, shape or form represents what this country truly stands for. He is beneath us." - Ben Gibbard

    30 Days, 30 Songs will feature one song per day from October 10 until Election Day. The artists are united in their desire to speak out against the ignorant, divisive, and hateful campaign of Donald Trump. Stay tuned over the coming days as the playlist unfolds, and don't forget to go vote.

    LYRICS
    From a great height he's looking down on his city at night
    From gilded room of gold, marble and soft perfume
    And he's proud to say he built his fortune the old-fashioned way
    Because to succeed there's only one thing you really need

    A million dollar loan
    Nobody makes it on their own without
    A million dollar loan
    You'll reap what you've sown from
    A million dollar loan
    Call your father on the phone and get that
    Million dollar loan

    His enemies can't contain the flames of jealousy
    With brutish charm the women flock to be on his arm
    Because it's a sign of weakness to apologize
    And he counter sues from any corner he's backed into

    A million dollar loan
    Nobody makes it on their own without
    A million dollar loan
    To cast the first stone you'll need
    A million dollar loan
    Every ascension to a throne starts with
    A million dollar loan

    A million dollar loan
    Nobody makes it on their own without
    A million dollar loan
    You'll reap what you've sown from
    A million dollar loan
    Call your father on the phone and get that
    Million dollar loan

    A siren screams through the city as he falls asleep
    The campaign begins again at the break of day

    A million dollar loan
    Nobody makes it on their own without
    A million dollar loan
    To cast the first stone you'll need
    A million dollar loan
    Every ascension to a throne starts with
    A million dollar loan

    A million dollar loan
    Nobody makes it on their own without
    A million dollar loan
    You'll reap what you've sown from
    A million dollar loan
    Call your father on the phone and get that
    Million dollar loan

    This is nothing new, guys. Artists hated Bush and Regan as well as you all know. All R's are assholes and the devil to the arts community for some reason. I guess they wont fund their stupid school programs. Wahhhhhh.

    LYRICS

    That bastard making fun of me in front of all my peers
    Those people think I own this town, you’re stripping all my gears
    Well guess what Mr. President, I’ll be seeing you
    In four years

    Though on the campaign trail the papers paint me like a clown
    Still all I see are crowds who want to fit me for a crown
    I point out all my enemies just so my fans
    Bring them down

    Isn’t anybody going to stop me?
    I don’t want this job
    I don’t want this job, my god
    Can’t you tell
    I’m unwell

    You try to pin me down but you don’t really try that hard
    I throw out any shit I want and no one trumps that card
    So dazzled and distracted by your fantasy
    Of Hildegard

    Isn’t anybody going to stop me?
    I don’t want this job
    I don’t want this job, my god
    Can’t you tell
    I’m unwell

    You ask about my plan but baby my plan is to win
    I wind up all the tops and watch the others keep the spin
    You handing me grenades is just compelling me
    To pull the pin

    Isn’t anybody going to stop me?
    I don’t want this job
    I can’t do this job, my god
    Can’t you tell
    I’m unwell

    It's a thread about 30 Anti-Trump songs in 30 days. There will be a new one every day. Brace yourself.
