The likes of Courtney Love, Matt Healy, Wolf Alice and more have responded to the historic result.
Regardless of your politics, this American presidential campaign has been the most divisive of our lifetimes. After a vicious and long election process, It’s now official that Donald Trump will be the 45th president of America.
And as you can imagine, the musical community has come out in full force to lament and celebrate the result. See responses from The 1975, Cher and more below.
The Radiohead star let his Burn The Witch lyrics do the talking:
