Morning Joe Airs March For Our Lives Tribute Featuring Joe Scarborough’s Terrible Soft Rock Ballad

Joe Scarborough’s alter ego as a soft rock crooner is well known. Not because his music is popular, but because he keeps playing it on his MSNBC show Morning Joe.

On Monday, following the weekend’s March For Our Lives — a nationwide protest against gun violence organized by student survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting — the show aired a montage of photos from the historic event.

And it was accompanied by one of Scarborough’s own tunes.

The unbearably cringe-worthy ballad, called “Stand,” was released earlier this year and apparently “inspired by the Women’s March and dedicated to those who #Resist.”

“Once in your life, you may get the chance to stand against a column of tanks,” Scarborough croons. “And once in your life, you may get the chance to say words like deep within your heart that change the outcome of the day.”

“And how the world turns violently, we’re battered by the savagery but we will not wake not on bended knees, we will not go down quietly, will not go down silently.”

According to a quick Google search, it appears this isn’t the first time Scarborough has subjected Morning Joe viewers to his self-indulgent music during a #Resistance montage. Morning Joe also aired a montage of the 2018 Women’s March in January accompanied by the same song.
