Bruce Springsteen and Houserockers frontman Joe Grushecky have teamed up for a new anti-Trump protest song, titled “That’s What Makes Us Great“.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Grushecky already had the song before Springsteen and he began talking about a collaboration. “I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ‘What do you think about singing on it?’ He gave it the Bruce treatment,” Grushecky explained.

Grushecky continued to say that Trump lost his vote “the moment he started making fun of special needs people. How could a person like that be president of the United States?” You can listen to “That’s What Makes Us Great” over on Grushecky’s website.
