The late MF DOOM also appears on the playlist, and a number of fans of the rapper, who died late last year, have shared their upset at his inclusion.

The unhappiness stems from DOOM, who was British-born and never obtained US citizenship, being refused re-entry into the States in 2010 after a European tour, when Joe Biden was Vice President to Barack Obama.

One fan tweeted: “MF DOOM died in a foreign country because Joe Biden’s president wouldn’t let him come back to his homeland”, while a further user claimed that it was “insulting that the Obama administration deported MF DOOM and then Joe Biden puts him on his inauguration playlist”.
