Jack White’s Third Man Records made an “Icky Trump” shirt available for purchase on Thursday. The shirt is a reference to the Stripes’ 2007 record, “Icky Thump,” which appeared on its last studio album.
The merchandise announcement comes just two days after the band, which disbanded five years ago, voiced strong disapproval of the use of its 2003 song “Seven Nation Army” in a pro-Trump ad.
“The White Stripes would like to unequivocally state that they have nothing whatsoever to do with this video,” the band wrote in a joint statement. “They are disgusted by this association, and by the illegal use of their song.”
The front design of the shirt reads “Icky Trump” and the back has the lyrics of “Icky Thump,” which tackle the topic of immigration:
White Americans? What?
Nothing better to do?
Why don’t you kick yourself out?
You’re an immigrant too.
Who’s using who?
What should we do?
Well, you can’t be a pimp
And a prostitute too.
Other celebrities that have condemned the Trump campaign for using their music include Adele, Steven Tyler, the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, and R.E.M.’S Michael Stripe. The shirt can be purchased on Third Man’s website.
