For the infamous 2016 campaign, the Republican Party offered the band $100,000 to play at a concert launching the 2016 Republican National Convention. Singer Robin Zander said, "We turned it down. Then we had second thoughts. Maybe we should have accepted it—but we would all have got swastika guitars made." Cheap Trick is known for making flip remarks all the time.
Bassist Tom Peterson and Guitarist Rick Neilson were in a band called Fuse before Cheap Trick was formed in 1973. They put out one single ("Hound Dog" b/w "Crusin for Burgers") in 1969 and only one album, called 'Fuse' in January 1970 Rick: "Tom Petersson and I were in a Midwest band called Fuse. The guys we were with were all rinky dinks; they’re probably pumping gas now. Tom and I had the stick-to-it-iveness and positive thinking to know what we wanted to do, so we split the band and went off to hang out in England.... That Fuse stuff stinks. We don’t stand by it" Tom: "The band was much better than the album indicates. When it came out we were disgusted. The producer was an idiot." Rick and Tom went on to form a new band called Sick Man of Europe which led to Cheap Trick.
