BREAKING NEWS: Artist Hates Obama, Band Hates Romney

Every four years, the American public are treated to a disgustingly expensive pro wrestling event know as election season. Your vote kinda sorta counts, except when it doesn’t. “Last election, an Iowa or New Hampshire voter had the same impact as five Super Tuesday voters put together.” You have more power in a rigged American Idol contest.

My advice to musicians is to not publically back any of these candidates because it will make you look stupid and lose lots of dumb fans, especially when these sheep are so defensive about candidates who share similarly wrong beliefs on 40 very important issues.

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has accused Obama of staging these spree killings in Colorado and Wisconsin. The last we heard of Mustaine, he was babbling about being a diehard Rick Santorum supporter, so this here is a hateful man. He does bring up the coincidence about the United Nations gun ban the week after the shootings. If he switched the word “Obama” with “United Nations”, this might have been better received than the ignorant vitriol it was. It’ll be interesting to see if Megadeath’s sales rise or fall.

Now my advice to politicians is SCREW YOU! to stop being so clueless when it comes to popular copyrighted songs. This is 2012, there’s cameras recording your every move, and odds are, the artist who’s creation you are exploiting hates you!

Mitt Romney’s campaign used Los Angeles alt-rockers Silversun Pickups’ 2009 track “Panic Switch” at an event, and he was greeted with an instant cease and desist letter. Frontman Brian Aubert explains the irony of “Panic Switch”:

“We’re nice, approachable people. We won’t bite. Unless you’re Mitt Romney!

We were very close to just letting this go because the irony was too good. While he is inadvertently playing a song that describes his whole campaign, we doubt that ‘Panic Switch’ really sends the message he intends.”

Hey Mitt Romney, I suggest you switch over to Megadeath ASAP!
