Default Openly-republican alternative rock bands or musicians

So far I can think of no alternative rock band or musician that has come out in support of a Republican candidate, and many have condemned them (REM, Moby, Death Cab For Cutie, Bob Mould, Green Day, among others in 2016), particularly this time with Trump. I found a list of 72 Republican musicians and none of them were affiliated with the alternative rock scene. So I ask, are there any alternative rock groups that openly endorse the Republican party?

He seems like an American version of Noel Gallagher (who has expressed similar views in recent years while still giving an "I don't care" attitude)

Yeah he indicated some right-leanings during some interviews some years back so I just kinda assumed. Interesting dude actually.

Edit: I'm not sure if this counts since he's not alt rock, but I was pretty surprised to hear that Kanye currently falls into this category.
