Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, also known as the Pet Shop Boys, just released a new song called "Give Stupidity A Chance". Who is the song about? Why, Donald Trump of course.
The British pop duo has been around for 30-something years, and they are considered the most successful duo in the UK by The Guinness Book of Records.
They have sold over 100 million records and have been nominated for numerous Grammys.
Even though they've been active since the '80s, Pet Shop Boys remain ever-so relevant.
They just came out with a new song titled "Give Stupidity A Chance".

The song is from their new EP, Agenda.
Frontman Neil Tennant described the song as,
"a satirical song about the poor quality of political leadership in the modern world"
The song begins with the following lyrics.
"Intelligent people have had their say,
It's time for the foolish to show the way,
Let's lead this world a merry dance,
Let's give stupidity a chance."
There's also a direct jab at Donald Trump's Access: Hollywood tape.
"Forget political correctness, let's talk man to man,People are living for the duo's newest sure-to-be hit
Chicks are always up for it, you gotta grab whatever you can,
We need a leader who knows that money means class,
With an eye for a peach-perfect piece of ass,
Not a total dumb-cluck, just one of the guys, let's give stupidity a prize."
