3 Doors Down is best known for their 2000 hit “Kryptonite,” which peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was even featured on Guitar Hero 5. In the years since, the band has undergone several transformations, at one point replacing bassist Todd Harrell after he was charged with vehicular homicide for killing 47-year-old Paul Howard Shoulders Jr. while under the influence of prescription painkillers.

Now, it appears the band is poised to re-emerge on the national stage, headlining the “‘Make America Great Again!’ Welcome Celebration” in Washington D.C. on Jan. 19. This makes the band one of the only well-known musical acts willing to perform for Trump’s inauguration.

And naturally, the internet was all-to-happy to mock the early aughts chart-topper for their decision:

Mike Pence's chief of staff, Marc Short, belittled a former staffer who has now come out against President Donald Trump for his failed response to the coronavirus pandemic.

In an NBC News interview, Olivia Troye, who advised Pence on homeland security, counterterrorism and the coronavirus, explained that the main conversation in the White House over the coronavirus was about Trump's image, and not saving Americans.

"He's not actually looking out for you," Troye said. "He's not looking out for these people. He's not looking out for them. He just wants you in that audience so he can have the camera shot of, you know, his fanfare and the people around him. But the truth is, he's putting those lives at risk.”

On Tuesday, the Lincoln Project issued a press release announcing a massive ad buy on the Stars & Stripes and Military Times network of publications, aiming ads at servicemembers and veterans to remind them of President Donald Trump's lack of respect for the troops.

“It’s a complete disgrace that a Commander-in-Chief who dodged serving in Vietnam and denigrated POW's publicly has the audacity to disrespect the millions of brave men and women who volunteered for military service,” said Lincoln Project veteran's affairs adviser Fred Wellman. “President Trump has allowed Russia to put bounties on the heads of our brave service members and sought favor with our enemies. The Lincoln Project is taking this message directly to the military community so that every service member, veteran, and their families know the truth about Donald Trump’s betrayal of America’s troops.”
