(CNN) - Grunge band Pearl Jam is getting some attention for a concert poster.

It shows the White House in flames and a bald eagle picking at a skeleton with hair which resembles president Trump's hair.

The poster was made to commemorate a show in Montana on August 13.

It was drawn by the band's bassist, Jeff Ament - in conjunction with another artist.

Ament said he wanted to show support for Montana Democratic senator John Tester.

But republicans have taken issue with it.

The Republican National Committee chairwoman called it “disgusting.”

And even Tester himself has said, through a spokesman, that he doesn't like it.
