Moby is “still laughing” at an offer to DJ at one of Donald Trump’s inaugural balls, saying he would accept the offer only if the president-elect releases his tax returns.

“Hahahahaha, I was just asked by a booking agent if I would consider djing at one of the inaugural balls for #trump,” the performer wrote in an Instagram post Monday. “Hahahahaha, wait, Hahahaha, really?”

“I guess I’d DJ at an inaugural ball if as payment #trump released his tax returns,” he wrote. “Also I would probably play public enemy and stockhausen remixes to entertain the republicans. I’m still laughing. Hahahaha. So #trump what do you think, I DJ for you and you release your tax returns?”

Billboard reached out to Moby to ask what his setlist would be if he decided to perform for Mr. Trump. He included Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name,” Green Day’s “American Idiot,” Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power,” Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War” and Pete Seeger’s “We Shall Overcome.”

Moby, who publicly supported Hillary Clinton’s failed Democratic presidential campaign, has been outspoken in his disdain for Mr. Trump. In an op-ed the day after the election, he said the business mogul would be “the worst president our country has ever, ever seen.”

“[D]onald trump will be impeached, or end his presidency with single digit approval ratings. 
and hopefully, somehow, america will finally wake up the fact that republicans are, simply, terrible,” he wrote at the time.
