Did you know that heavy metal music was played at a Trump speech recently? Some people are outraged, while others think it’s hilarious. What do you think?


Heavy metal music is often associated with aggression, power and, sometimes, violence. Given this, it may seem strange that heavy metal music was played at a Donald Trump speech recently. However, upon closer inspection, it makes perfect sense.

First of all, Donald Trump is known for his aggressive rhetoric. He often speaks in a very forceful and powerful way, using language that packs a punch. This is similar to the way that heavy metal music is often delivered – with passion and power.

Secondly, many heavy metal songs are actually about overcoming adversity and rising up against oppression. This fits perfectly with Trump’s message of making America great again. He wants to give power back to the people and fight against those who have oppressed them.

So, in many ways, heavy metal music is the perfect choice for a Trump speech. It reinforces his message and speaks to his base in a way that other genres of music might not be able to do.

Trump’s Speech

Heavy metal music blasted as President Donald Trump spoke at a rally in Florida on Tuesday night, drowning out his voice at times. It’s unclear why the music was played.

Trump’s Controversial Statements

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been marked by a number of controversial statements. From calling for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” to pledging to build a wall along the Mexican border, Trump has made a number of statements that have drawn criticism from both Democrats and Republicans. Here are some of Trump’s most controversial statements:

-On Muslims: “I think Islam hates us.” (March 9, 2016)
-On Mexican immigrants: “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.” (June 16, 2015)
-On John McCain: “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” (July 18, 2015)
-On Megyn Kelly: “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her… wherever.” (August 7, 2015)
-On Carly Fiorina: “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?” (September 9, 2015)
-On Hillary Clinton: “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” (April 16, 2015)
-On Barack Obama: “He is perhaps the worst thing that has ever happened to Israel.” (March 21, 2016)

The Reactions

Many people were surprised when Trump’s team chose to play heavy metal music at his recent speech. Some felt that it was a good choice, while others thought it was inappropriate.

Some people feel that heavy metal music is energizing and gets people pumped up, which is perfect for a political rally. Others, however, feel that the music is too aggressive and sends the wrong message.

What do you think? Do you think heavy metal music is a good choice for a political rally?

The Backlash

As soon as it was announced that Trump would be speaking at a metal music festival, there was a huge backlash. Many people in the metal community were outraged that Trump would be speaking at an event that was supposed to be about music, not politics.

Some people even threatened to boycott the festival if Trump was allowed to speak. But in the end, Trump ended up giving a speech at the festival anyway. And while his speech was met with some boos from the crowd, it wasn’t as bad as many people had feared.

The Band

The Music

When President Trump spoke at a rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday night, he was accompanied by music from the heavy metal band onstage.

The event’s organizers had reportedly not asked the band’s permission to use their music, and the band was not happy about it.

In a statement posted on their Facebook page, the band said: “We do not condone the use of our music by any hate groups.”

The band also said they had “nothing to do with” the event and urged their fans “not to support those who Division.”

The president has been criticized for his divisive rhetoric, and many have accused him of being a white supremacist.

The Lyrics

What do you think the band was trying to say with their music?

The band’s music has been used by Trump supporters at various rallies and events, including the 2016 Republican National Convention. Some of the lyrics of their songs seem to support Trump’s policies, including “Make America Great Again” and “send her back.”

The Members

Masters of ceremoniously creating the heaviest, most nightmarish sounds imaginable, New York death metal band Mortuary Temple are unlike any other band out there today. The quartet, made up of members Mike IV on vocals, TJF on guitar, Danny Boy on bass, and Pat “the Bat” on drums, formed in 2012 with the explicit goal of creating the most skull-crushing music possible. Fueled by a shared love of horror movies, occultism, and general darkness, the band set out to create a totally unique form of audio terror.

The results are truly nightmarish. Mortuary Temple’s sound is best described as a Lovecraftian mix of death metal, black metal, and doom metal, with hints of punk and hardcore thrown in for good measure. Listening to their music is like being trapped in a nightmare; it’s oppressive, unrelenting, and downright chaotic at times. But despite how dark and foreboding their music may be, there’s also an undeniable sense of fun and playfulness to it all. It’s clear that these guys are having a blast doing what they’re doing, and that energy comes across loud and clear in their tunes.

If you’re looking for some new heavy music to bang your head to, look no further than Mortuary Temple. These guys are sure to become one of your new favorite bands.

The Controversy

Many people were surprised when they heard heavy metal music playing at a Trump rally. Trump has been known to play rock music at his rallies, but heavy metal is a genre that is typically associated with left-wing politics. This choice of music may have been a deliberate attempt to appeal to Trump’s base.

The Criticism

The use of heavy metal music at Donald Trump’s rallies has come under criticism from some in the music community.

Trump has used songs by a number of heavy metal bands at his rallies, including Twisted Sister, Judas Priest, and Queen. In July 2016, the band Queen publicly criticized Trump for using their song “We Are the Champions” at his rallies without permission. frontman Brian May said that the band was exploring “legal channels” to stop Trump from using their music.

In September 2016, Metallica also spoke out against Trump’s use of their music, saying that they had “made it clear” that he was not authorized to use their songs.

Trump’s use of heavy metal music has been criticized as being inappropriate for a political candidate, with some arguing that it is associated with violence and racism.

The Supporters

Heavy metal music has often been associated with rebellion and counterculture. So, it’s not surprising that some people see the choice of music at a Trump rally as a way of thumbing their noses at the “establishment.”

“To me, it’s just another sign that Trump is not your typical politician,” said John Mape, an attendee at a recent rally in Florida. “He’s somebody who is willing to break the mold and do things differently.”

Mape said he feels a connection to Trump because he also likes to “time to time stick it to the man.”

“I think it’s cool that he’s not afraid to ruffle some feathers,” he said. “And I think his supporters are kind of the same way.”


In conclusion, it is difficult to say definitively whether or not heavy metal music was played at Trump’s speech. However, given the fact that Trump has been known to use heavy metal music at his rallies in the past, it is certainly possible that this was the case.
