The pop-punk band took to Instagram on Friday announce the release of her new T-shirt, featuring Trump’s mugshot covered in the signature yellow “Nimrod” sticker seen in the logo of her 1997 album “Nimrod.”
“Good release. The ultimate Nimrod shirt is only available for 72 hours,” Green Day wrote in the caption. The band also took the opportunity to throw a dig at Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump’s alleged conspirators, jokingly referring to Giuliani’s legal defense fund: “Proceeds from the limited edition t-shirts will be donated to T̶h̶e̶ ̶G̶i̶u̶l̶i̶a̶n̶i̶ ̶L̶e̶g̶a̶ l̶ ̶D̶e̶f̶ donated.” e̶n̶s̶e̶ ̶F̶u̶n̶d̶ @greatergoodmusiccharity bringing food to those affected by the Maui wildfires.”
Trump and 18 other co-defendants were indicted by a grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia on Aug. 14 on racketeering and related felonies.

Trump’s mugshot, which made history as the first ever mugshot of a president, was taken less than two weeks later, on August 24.
This isn’t the first time Green Day has openly expressed dislike for Trump and his cronies. In a 2017 interview with Rolling StoneFrontman Billie Joe Armstrong condemned Trump’s political views a few months after his inauguration: “I feel like the government is trying in many ways to create a culture war between us. She’s trying to argue between the average citizen on the basis of red and blue. I think we are in crisis mode right now.”
He added, “I want people to feel united when they come to a show. At the same time, I won’t bother to say what’s on my mind.” [Trump] and its administration.
