Rapper Bryson Gray’s anti-Biden song Let’s Go Brandon shoots to the top of the iTunes chart toppling Adele off the number one spot despite being banned by YouTube
- Conservative rapper took aim at Biden in his anti-vaxx track Let’s Go Brandon
- The title references NBC reporter who misheard chants of ‘f*** Joe Biden’
- It was removed from Instagram and YouTube over ‘medical information’
A US rapper has knocked Adele off the top of the charts with his anti-Biden song which has been banned by YouTube for spreading ‘harmful false information’ about Covid.
Bryson Gray’s song Let’s Go Brandon skyrocketed to Number One of the iTunes charts, featuring provocative lyrics such as ‘Joe is a crook’, ‘they buildin’ back better, but only the Taliban‘, and ‘pandemic ain’t real, they planned it’.
The phrase Let’s Go Brandon was sparked after reporter Kelli Stavast mistook chants of ‘f*** Joe Biden‘ at a NASCAR rally in September for the more benign phrase, and it has since become a running joke among Biden critics, used as shorthand to mock the president.
Its popularity as an internet meme and now as a Number One song show the level of anti-Biden sentiment growing in the US.
Gray’s song features a number of anti-vaxx messages and warnings about vaccine mandates, prompting YouTube and Instagram to remove it from their platforms.

Despite the YouTube and Instagram censorship, the song has remained popular with fans, and multiple versions of the track are now in the iTunes charts
The Christian Conservative rapper, 30, from California tweeted in response: ‘YouTube has banned “Let’s Go Brandon” song from YouTube due to “medical information.” What medical misinformation is in the song? Whoa.’
Ironically, the song’s lyrics feature the line: ‘If you ask questions ’bout the Vax, then they gonna ban us.’
Despite the YouTube and Instagram censorship, the song has remained popular with fans, and it remains at the top of the iTunes charts, ahead of Adele’s comeback single Easy On Me.
Gray told the New York Post: ‘If you read guidelines for social media sites now, the guidelines themselves are against conservatism. You literally can’t have a conservative opinion.
‘Like I can’t say there are only two genders, or I can’t call somebody by what they are. I have to be delusional with them.
‘Cancel culture doesn’t work anymore. It only works on people who are scared … all it does is help me out. Thanks, YouTube!’
Gray – who describes himself as ‘the most censored rap artist in America’ – has been in the charts since Sunday.

In the music video for the song, Gray appears in an ‘Impeach Biden’ T-shirt and a MAGA bucket hat while holding an assault rifle.
He has previously been seen attending a Trump rally in Fayetteville and often wears a giant Maga hat.
According to Gray, YouTube initially took down the lyric version of the video before the actual music video was taken down.
He compared Google-owned YouTube to a Communist dictatorship and said that the ban only made the song more popular.
‘I want to thank YouTube for banning my ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ song. All y’all did was p*** a bunch of people off and made more people go listen to it. Let’s Go YouTube. Commies,’ he tweeted on Saturday.
