As America barrels toward Election Day, indie rock veterans Death Cab For Cutie joined Y.G. and Nipsey Hussle in marking the campaign season with a sobering protest song. The 19-year-old Bellingham, Washington, band on Monday released “Million Dollar Loan,” an anti-Donald Trump work that criticizes the Republican presidential nominee’s wealth—and how it shapes his worldview. 

The song kicks off “30 Days, 30 Songs,” a Dave Eggers-led project that will release an anti-Trump song a day in the run up to Nov. 8. As the project notes: “The artists are united in their desire to speak out against the ignorant, divisive, and hateful campaign of Donald Trump.”
