It’s been reported that President-elect Donald Trump is having difficulty lining up people to perform at his inauguration next month. However, an offer came in from one of his staunchest celebrity critics. Alec Baldwin, who has impersonated Trump on Saturday Night Live, wants to do it on the condition that he sings one of AC/DC‘s best-known songs.

“I wanna perform at Trump’s inauguration,” he tweeted. “I wanna sing ‘Highway to Hell.'” Baldwin attached a link to AC/DC’s original promotional clip for the song.

Few details are known about the inauguration concert, but it’s gaining more headlines for who is not playing. Shortly after Trump’s election, it was reported that Vince Neil was on the list, but he said soon after that he was “uninvited.” Yesterday, it was revealed that Kisspolitely declined” to play, with Paul Stanley citing “many reasons.”

According to the Huffington Post, only teenage classical crossover singer Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Rockettes are confirmed for the event. The Mike Love-fronted Beach Boys have been asked to play, but a spokesperson for the group said that “no decision has been made at this point as to how or whether they will participate.”

“Highway to Hell” was the title track to AC/DC’s 1979 album and their first single to chart in the U.S., reaching No. 47 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, it was the last record they made with lead singer Bon Scott. He passed away roughly six months after Highway to Hell‘s release.
