“Nobody has more respect for women than I do. Nobody.”
We don’t like to get too political at ACCLAIM. However, that one quote – and I don’t think I need to tell you who said it – deserves about as much scrutiny as the JFK assassination. The final US presidential debate has been and gone and now it’s up to each candidate to carefully mince each of their words. Just don’t expect the music world to do the same. This year’s campaign has also coincided with the release of some excellent politically charged tracks from pissed off artists taking aim at the whimsical political climate we’re somehow stuck in. Some go red, most are blue. While we can guffaw at the idea of musicians fronting a political facade as an excuse to release new music, the debate has become so heated that music and art seem to be the only outlets free of chicanery and two-face political bullshit. With election day in just over a fortnight, this week Bars looks back on those talented peoples who’ve shared their two cents on the US Presidential Election everybody hates but desperately needs in their mundane 9 to 5.
