Foo Fighters, Cornell To Play Obama Fundraisers

09:31 AM Tuesday 2/14/12 |   |

President Barack Obama's upcoming West Coast fundraising trip will feature a musical lineup worthy of Grammy gold.

  • Foo Fighters

    Day No. 2 of the 25th annual Bridge School Benefit.

Obama campaign officials say the Foo Fighters, fresh off winning five Grammys on Sunday, will perform at a Los Angeles fundraiser on Wednesday. In San Francisco on Thursday, the president's supporters will hear a performance by the former frontman for Soundgarden, Chris Cornell.

And on Friday, Seattle band the Head and the Heart will perform at a fundraiser in Bellevue, Wash.

Obama is holding eight fundraisers during a three-day trip to Wisconsin, California and Washington state to benefit the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising account for the president's re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The president raised more than $220 million in 2011 in preparation for the general election race.

    Hey, right wingers have their own music icons. Go listen to some Kid Rock, he plays more to your redneck mentality anyway. Right on Grohl-boys!!

    I'm so glad that if they've decided to perform for anyone's campaign, it 's Obama's and not  the asshats of the GOP.   Bigotry against minorities, hatred against gays, and their stupid religoius beliefs causing in them the desire to overturn Roe vs Wade, thereby taking away from women the right to choose what they want to do with their own bodies, just a few of the things I hate about stances the GOP takes.  It's like they want to take this country back to the backwoods era of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

    According to Dave Grohl. the GOP is greedy and they just care about themselves. So glad they are performing for the Obama campaign. Either way they rock!

    I love music and I like politics, but for the Love of God, STICK TO MUSIC!!!!!!

    Why would I or any other free minded person give two squirts what a band thinks about politics?

    LOOK!  ^^^^  Foo Fighters aren't the only ones.  Evster likes false hope, bad leadership, campaign lies and record breaking deficits!  When I wake up in the morning I look in the mirror and am proud of who I am, what I've earned and how I lead my life.  You're a Libbie and you can't say the same.

    And I suppose they would be less retarded if they supported the (a) egomaniacal serial misogynist, (b) textbook out-of-touch corporate elitist who's willing to say whatever it takes to get elected, or (c) christian fundamentalist who would run the country according to his take on "god's law"?

    Dear Foo Fighters, I really like you guys a lot.  But you're politically retarded.
