To this day, no song has been able to capture the anti-Trump vitriol with more cathartic artfulness than YG's "FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)." It dropped in March 2016, but radio stations all over the country are finally picking up on it — or being forced to.
Wednesday, BuzzFeed reported that Sunny 107.9 WFBS, a local radio station in Salem, South Carolina, that mostly spins oldies and beach music, had been hacked to play the Compton rapper's profane anthem. They sent a since-deleted apology to their viewers via Facebook with president and majority shareholder Frank Patterson reassuring listeners "we hold our political views to ourselves" and that they had "forwarded" the hackers IP address to the government for prosecution.
The station later replaced their initial apology with a thank you to local TV stations that helped get the word out about what happened to their station.
Sunny 107.9 was hardly the first station to fall prey to an unexpected "FDT" dance party. A similar thing happened to an R&B oldies station in San Angelo, Texas, on Jan. 20, Trump's inauguration, though in that instance the song looped for an entire hour. That same day it happened on El Jefe 96.7 a Tennessee Spanish language station, Mother of the Redeemer Radio in Evansville, Indiana, and Cresent Hill Radio, a nonprofit station playing local music in Louisville, Kentucky.
Reporters at Heat Street confirmed that the hacks took place through a Barix Exstreamer device, which stations had neglected to password protect.
"None of us had set a password to the device," Kathy Weisbach, president of Crescent Hill Radio, told Heat Street. "My bad, as I had done other security measures at the tower and the studio but failed to password protect this device. You can bet it is now."
Other radio stations using similar gear may find themselves with an interloper in their playlists soon enough. If so inclined, you should be ready to sing along, or at least have a few of the key lines on lock, such as YG's breakdown of Reagan's, Obama's and Donald Trump's presidencies:
Look, Reagan sold coke, Obama sold hopeDonald Trump spent his trust fund money on the vote
Or YG and Nipsey Hussle's call for Mexican, black and white people to unite in resistance:
It wouldn't be the USA without MexicansAnd if it's time to team up, shit, let's beginBlack love, brown pride in the sets againWhite people feel the same as my next of kinIf we let this nigga win, God bless the kids
