Rogue Wave have covered Guided By Voices’ “Vote For Me Dummy” as part of the “30 Days, 30 Songs” (now expanded to 50 songs) anti-Trump campaign put together by author/publisher Dave Eggers and Death Cab for Cutie manager Jordan Kurland. This is the last song in the “30 Days, 30 Songs” project. Rogue Wave released their humorously titled new album, Delusions of Grand Fur, back in April via Easy Sound. Watch the lyric video below.

The band released this statement about the song: “The lyrics to this GBV song may sound politically neutral, but we’re not during this election. Trump and all that he represents is political arson at its worst. We participated in this project to very clearly state that we repudiate Donald Trump and the mentality that supports his so-called campaign. Stop the madness. Vote for Hillary.”

The “30 Days, 30 Songs” project will feature at least one song a day until election day. It was launched with Death Cab for Cutie’s anti-Trump song “Million Dollar Loan,” and includes Jim James’ video for “Same Old Lie,” Franz Ferdinand’s “Demagogue,” Thao’s “Before You Vote,” EL VY’s “Are These My Jets,” two songs by Moby (“Trump Is on Your Side” and “Little Failure”), Jesu/Sun Kil Moon’s “The Greatest Conversation Ever in the History of the Universe,” clipping.‘s “Fat Fingers,” Mirah’s “No Guns No Guns,” The Long Winters’ “Make America Great Again,” Jimmy Eat World’s “My Enemy,” Kyle Craft’s “Before the Wall,” Tim Heidecker’s “Trump’s Pilot,” Modern Baseball’s “Bart to the Future Part 2: The Musical,” and a video of Andrew Bird and Jim James performing an updated version of “Sic of Elephants.”
