In the last couple days of the presidential campaign, the difference between the two parties when it comes to music were crystal clear. President Obama had Bruce Springsteen traveling with him, while Mitt Romney had to settle for the Marshall Tucker Band — which cleverly changed the lyrics to its one hit song to “Can’t You See, What Obama Been Doin’ To Me?” I guess Ambrosia and the Starlight Vocal Band were busy.
But that’s just the start. I’m sure you’ve seen the painful rendition of America the Beautiful that Meatloaf performed next to Romney a week before the election. But in case you haven’t:
Holy shit. Give me a ‘B’ — I’ll flatten it myself. Then there was Kid Rock, who seems to always want to remind people what his name is by saying it 147 times in every song. And to top it all off, Jack Blades, the bass player and sometimes lead singer of Night Ranger, actually performed at the Republican National Convention.
Guys, seriously. Stop.
