You get to pick the Democratic ticket, but you can only select musicians. Who do you nominate?

Asked by rockfan (11210points) 1 month ago from iPhone

I know this is a really silly question, but it’s just for a bit of fun.

I’d choose Jeff Tweedy of the band Wilco and singer-songwriter Regina Spektor.

For starters, I’ll pick the Republican ticket and go with Maria Brink from In This Moment.

Do either of you know anything concerning the political views of your proposed candidates?

Marilyn Manson and Al Yankovic.
You will need to choose another VP, because that Spektor woman is from Russia.

@ragingloli

Damn I forgot. Then I’d choose Steve Earle.

Yep, I know their political stances quite well.

Kanye West.
Flea.
Killer Mike (sorry @hmmmmmm, not copying you but I agree.)

Bruce Springsteen for President (he is, after all, the Boss)
Jimmy Buffet for VP

Brink is a vegetarian and active in PETA, that’s rare for a conservative.

Ringo Starr.

Tom Hanks.

(He played a piano in Big. Does that count as a musician)

Ozzy Osbourne and Keith Moon.

Randy Newman & Bonnie Raitt

^ (Tom Hanks?) Then I guess Roseanne qualifies, so her, and Ted Nugent.

kritiper's avatar

My sister picked Willie Nelson. I said “Yeah, and we can have Snoop Dogg for VP.”

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

Mozart and Salieri would also be a fine choice.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Patty_Melt I wondered if anyone would mention Nugent…haha, I love it.

Caravanfan's avatar

Axl Rose, of course!

gorillapaws's avatar

Killer Mike and Immortal Technique.

Technically Bernie is a recorded musician, but I think everyone would rather pretend that never happened… It’s kind of like the Star Wars Christmas Special.

hmmmmmm's avatar

3 Killer Mike responses. Needs to happen.

Spektor was born in RUssia – she couldn’t run anyway.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@hmmmmmm It’s always an option as write in lol, not legal but still counted.

ucme's avatar

Betty Boop & Ariel The Little Mermaid

Tom Hanks is a terrific drummer. He is also a black belt. Amazing skills he.

filmfann's avatar

I would pick Tom Hanks and The Boss.

Dave Mustane has expressed interest in running. Barney from Napalm Death would make a good VP.

In all seriousness, I can’t think of any qualified.
