According to WashingtonExaminer.com
, former SKID ROW
singer Sebastian Bach
has slammed Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan
for his supposed love of rock and roll.
Speaking at last week's GOP convention in Tampa, Florida, Ryan
said of his running mate Mitt Romney
, "There are the songs on his iPod which I've heard on the campaign bus — and on many hotel elevators. He actually urged me to play some of these songs at campaign rallies. I said, 'I hope it's not a deal-breaker, Mitt
, but my playlist starts with AC/DC
and ends with ZEPPELIN
While performing with CAMP FREDDY
last night (Monday, September 3) at the Butter nightclub in Charlotte, North Carolina as part of a kick-off event for the Democratic National Convention, Bach
poked fun at Ryan
, telling the crowd, "That means [his playlist] stops at the letter L. I guess he doesn't like MÖTLEY CRÜE
, I guess he doesn't like Minnie Riperton
, he doesn't even have any Melissa Manchester
on his [expletive] iPod."
Between songs, Bach
again. "Do you like LED ZEPPELIN
more than Paul Ryan
?" he said.
Other artists that have blasted the campaign include TWISTED SISTER
frontman Dee Snider
, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
guitarist Tom Morello
, Somali-Canadian artist K'naan
and SILVERSUN PICKUPS
, who objected to the campaign's use of their song "Panic Switch"
listed RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
as one of his favorites, despite their hardcore leftist leanings, Morello
slammed the far-right Congressman in an op-ed piece for Rolling Stone
