Everyone knows it’s hard out here for a pimp. But it’s also hard, it would seem, for whoever’s in charge of making song selections for the GOP. Heck, they choose a song, seemingly harmlessly, and without warning: Bam! They’re publicly lambasted! Or called out in a Rolling Stone opinion piece by their favorite band for being “the embodiment of the machine our music rages against.”
That’s a tough blow, man, but it happens. And to that well-meaning Republican music aficionado, it seems to happen rather frequently. Well, we here at Vox feel for that person. It isn’t their fault that half of the music industry seemingly hates their political affiliation.
And so, in light of said dude’s or dudette’s (We see you Sarah Palin!) apparent musical interests, as well as the numerous past complaints filed by the following artists against the GOP’s usage of their songs, we put together a playlist of tracks that will most likely no way, no how, not once, not ever be heard at any future Republican event.
“A” for effort though, Pachyderms! Might we instead suggest a little diddy from Nicki Minaj or 50 Cent? Perhaps something from one of these fine red-blooded Republican entertainment specimens?
Note: While most music related complaints seem to center on the Republican side, Democrats have received their (not entirely fair) share of flack too. Notably: Cyndi Lauper requested that her song, “True Colors” be removed from an anti-Romney attack ad, and Sam Moore of Sam & Dave requested in 2008 that Obama’s campaign refrain from using their 1966 classic, “Hold On I’m Coming.”
Got something we should add to the playlist? Let us know in the comments.
