Despite an uptick of coronavirus cases in Oklahoma and well-founded fears that the rally could be a COVID-19 "super-spreader," Trump rally attendees are making the most of the event.
With Donald Trump's first campaign rally since March set for the weekend, the President's superfans who call themselves "Front Row Joes" are going all out to make the event an epic rager. Although the 74-year-old is only scheduled to speak at a Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally on Saturday, some of his biggest fans lined up outside the arena on Thursday to make sure they wouldn't miss it. "I wanted to be at the first one back, because it feels like a symbol of America opening back up," Mike Grimes, who drove 750 miles to line up at the event, told The New York Post.

Despite an uptick of coronavirus cases in the area and well-founded fears that the rally could be a COVID-19 "super-spreader," attendees are making the most of the event with vendors selling MAGA memorabilia and performers singing Trump re-election songs. One such group with a guitar and a portable speaker entertained fellow Front Row Joes with horrible campaign songs that had an unmistakable Christian rock-style and a lot of jumping involved. The cringe levels were so high with this one that in a now-familiar Twitter tradition, someone soon posed the inevitable question: "Name this band."
Tulsa, OK. Three days before Trump’s rally. His supporters literally wrote a song and hired someone to film a music video. I don’t know if I should laugh or cry. This level of fanaticism is scary. pic.twitter.com/mt5nnXIsnC— Richard Song (@songrich_) June 18, 2020
"Four more years! Come on, everybody, four more years! Oooo... There will never be another USA, Freedom won't come back if you give it away..." they sang dressed in matching Trump 2020 shirts. "Vote Trump! 2020... Go, Trump! 2020... Vote Trump! 2020... Keep America great! Keep America great..." they concluded in a cozy huddle and smiles clearly not hidden under protective masks.
Twitterverse was quick to flex its creative muscles and answer the call for band names, offering up everything from tried and tested Trumphead names to some fun new COVID-19-themed once since the novel coronavirus is sure to have a free reign at this event. Here are some of our favorites:
