The poster is receiving a fair amount of backlash from the right.

The poster's message is incredibly clear, with flames spelling out the word "vote", while also including images of other United States senators, including Jon Tester and Republican challenger Matt Rosendale. "When you get 250,000 protestors of all ages, cultures, different sexual orientations... you know, maybe he's uniting people in a way that is gonna be needed in the near future".

Peal Jam released a graphic poster depicting the death of the president to promote a concert for a Democratic Senate candidate.

The poster has drawn significant criticism, especially from the right. The AP pointed out that his Republican opponent, Montana State Auditor Matt Rosendale, is shown with a crab claw for a hand while carrying a Maryland flag, in reference to his native state.

The poster shows Tester in a tractor flying over a burning Washington, D.C., framed by the letters "P" and "J", with smoke forming the word "Vote" in the background.

"It depicts a dead President Trump and a burning White House", Rosendale added.

Rosendale called the poster "disgusting and reprehensible", according to the AP, and called on Tester to "denounce this act of violence and blatant display of extremism".

The National Republican Senate Committee compared it to the now-infamous photo of comedian Kathy Griffin holding a fake decapitated Trump head.

Others aren't bothered by the poster - a writer for Spin Magazine said the poster shouldn't surprise anyone familiar with Pearl Jam's politics, and wrote, "It's more cartoonish than grisly, but it's still managed to rankle its right-wing targets".

"We never saw the poster before the show and we don't like it", Tester spokesman Chris Meagher said. "And we don't condone violence of any kind".

Pearl Jam's "Rock2Vote" concert in Missoula on Monday was staged independently of the campaign, with a focus on voter turnout.

Reps for the band have been contacted for comment. Titled "Can't Deny Me", the track is a rather overt political track that takes aim at Donald Trump with lyrics like "You may be rich but you can't deny me/got nothing but the will to survive", and "The country you are representing/condition critical". "Sickening. As many have said, that's it for me, no longer a fan".

The band shared the poster on its official Instagram page along with a note to fans from Ament endorsing Tester. Done supporting you clowns.
