If you are living in the US it’s pretty hard not to get sucked into all things political right now and if you were hoping for an escape from it in this podcast you will be sorely disappointed. As Bono has shown us music and politics go hand in hand and although the LMP doesn’t officially support a candidate we do think voting is important enough to be featured on a LMP PSA.
The voter registration deadlines are fastly approaching in many states, including my home state of Missouri where the last day to register is October 8th. Even if you haven’t made up your mind on who to vote for or even whether or not you will vote, the LMP strongly encourages you to register anyways in case you make up your mind when it’s too late. It only takes about 3 minutes and can even be completed online by going to either voteforchange.com or johnmccain.com.
One contest that does not require expensive ad campaigns and complicated polling is for the title of Greatest Band in the World. This episode features music from the one band that experts and fans can all agree on. I’m speaking, of course, about Tenacious D. The dynamic duo of Kyle Gass and Jack Black take rocking to a whole new level and have even been known to rock a face clean off. If you are offended by crude language or humor of any kind please look elsewhere. For all others please enjoy Tenacious D from their January 22, 2002 stop at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City.
