On Monday, the Boss tribute outfit B Street Band announced on Facebook that they'd decided to withdraw from performing at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's inauguration gala.

This would have been their third time performing at an inauguration party.

According to a post on the band's Facebook page, they chose to back out "based SOLELY on the respect and gratitude we have for Bruce and the E Street Band."

Bruce Springsteen was a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter and in a 2016 interview with Britain's Channel 4 referred to Trump as a "flagrant, toxic narcissist."

"Bruce's music has been the foundation of our livelihood. The B Street Band would not exist without the talents of Bruce and our E Street brothers," the band's post continued.

"We are most grateful to these rock legends and look forward to many more years of emulating and performing the Forever Music, [sic] of Bruce Springsteen."

Not surprisingly, some were critical of the band.


Others commended the band's decision.

Some also came up with a back-up to the back-up plan.

Trump's inaugural festivities have already suffered some dropouts. Other notable performers to drop out include Jennifer Holliday and Andrea Bocelli.
