I didn't need to know that Steely Dan is the name of a dildo.

From Spotify:  A carefully curated playlist by the good folks at Raedio for the inauguration of the 46th president & vice president of the United States. As this wonderous transition of power ensues, we strongly hold the joy of these select songs to be self-evident.

So Biden and his team had nothing to do with this.

I swear, people are so infatuated with their stupid little playlists nowadays and Spotify really doesn't have a great music selection if you get off the beaten path.

If I get elected president, I'm gonna be crankin' up some Gong and Last Exit and Zappa and Beefheart and Can and the Residents like you wouldn't believe. People will be all like, "The past sure is tense? What on earth does that mean?"

Not only that, this was the headline. Not a line of copy, but the headline:

"Biden team releases 46-track inaugural playlist for us all to be quietly worried to"

Well, to what??

Most middle-aged to old white people should not be DJs.

Wow, that's both thoughtless and heartless to serve all of those artists up as targets for violence to the anti Hollywood qanon cultists.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here but unlike the GOP shiatheels, Biden's team actually bothered to secure permission for each song chosen.

Do you really need to secure permission from each artist to create a playlist?

Even at rallies, the venue will have a blanket license to play almost anything, In the articles we see where artists object to the use of their songs, note that they can't do anything about it.

Trump Had some washed up country bands play his inauguration . That was fitting for him and his presidency.

mofa: I didn't need to know that Steely Dan is the name of a dildo.


Steely Dan, 10CC, and A Loving Spoonful were all band names as an inside joke to get past censorship.

Steely Dan was a dildo in an Erica Jong book,, the others references the amount of male jaculation.

Extra credit:  look up what a Limp Biscuit is.  You'll never be the same.

They should play all the musicians that gave Trump shiat over the years for playing their songs at the inauguration. It's a long list. Neil Young, Elton John, Tom Petty, John Fogerty, Phil Collins, REM, Adele, Steven Tyler, etc. I want to all that with Neil Young singing and playing guitar out front. That would be a good start to getting us pointed back in the right direction.

I listened to it... well went over it. It's "safe."

If the Obamas did it, it would be lots of Common and Stevie Wonder and Mavis Staples, which are transcendent artists to me. The Obamas have excellent taste in music.

Don't forget the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Even the Nixon-esque conservatives had a hard time with that one. They had a couple people quit over it, I believe.

They played at Reagan and Bush's inauguration. They're as mainstream as one gets.
