It gets passed down from parents to their children and when those kids grow up, they are probably going to pass it down to their kids. That’s really what I’m trying to do.”

Tom MacDonald’s critics
According to an essay published on Medium.com by The Red Being Shot about his lyrics, “MacDonald’s music is formulaic, trite, and devoid of any deep meaning. He goes on song length rants with no compelling arguments, rehashes the same viewpoints time and time again, and completely fails to understand the views of those who he so rabidly criticizes.”
Macdonald’s, on the other hand, continued to grow in popularity. His music appeals to a sizable conservative following that have the same anti-progressive views as he does.
“Coronavirus” by Tom MacDonald
Tom MacDonald’s launched “Coronavirus” in 2020, which became viral on the Internet. It received 5 million views in just one month. His opening verse begins with, “I don’t know what to think about this virus. It started in China, now everybody in America is hidin’. There’s no groceries, ’cause people start to panic and buy it.” The Dallas Observer gave it a harsh review calling it “worse than the actual Coronavirus”. The author of the review, Garrett Gravley says, “From a lyrical standpoint, the worst part about “Coronavirus” is that there’s no substantive analysis, and the thesis of the song can very well be summed up with the lyrics, “I don’t know what to think about this virus.” And while that’s ultimately not a bad message to convey, using pseudo-woke talking points about the media and the government makes the song thematically hollow at best.”
