US President Barack Obama is apparently seeking support from a host of music names for his re-election campaign, including Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend and Jay-Z.

A list printed in the Tennessean paper – via Rolling Stone - has stated that the President has included the above names, as well as Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Jack Johnson, The Roots and John Legend, on his 'wish list' of supporters from the music world.

The long list of names was sent to campaign donors and includes a number of possible names for celebrity endorsement and appearances for the current president's re-election campaign. Of the names listed, Jay-Z and John Legend have already publicly supported Obama, appearing on his behalf during his 2008 presidential campaign.


Look's like Obamas' firin' up the Corporate Obama Re-election Machine (CORM for short).


Last month former Pink Floyd co-frontman Roger Waters pleaded with US President Barack Obama to "develop bigger cojones". In an interview with Rolling Stone, Waters admitted that he was "very disappointed" with the politician's foreign policy and said that although he would still vote for Obama this year, he wanted him to be more courageous.

"I'm very, very disappointed by his foreign policy," he said. "It obviously goes against everything that I believe. Having said that, it seems that the alternative to re-electing Obama would be such a heinous disaster for this country if you look at the candidates on the other side."


Roger Waters is just awesome.

Period.

Have we not learned from the last MTV vote campaign that musicians and actors are not the best people for taking advise on voting. Look how good it turned out last time we voted....

Probably all on the government bill? Obama is just a big old gangster who wants to show off. Instead of having big rims on his vehicle he works and invites rap stars to his pad. I would not be surprised if we saw pictures of him posing with US government bonds

We may have to straighten old Roger Waters out and let him know about Ron Z Paul.
But, I don't know, Obama has gone against everything that Waters believes in, yet he will still vote for him?
Musical genius, yes. Common sense, not so much.

Agreed! Anyway, Waters has nerve to talk about anyone when he charges $500 a ticket for "The Wall" without David Gilmour!


Sorry Roger, saw it when it was $25.

Ok so let me get this straight he has an Indie Rock band from Quebec, and Indie Rock band from NYC, and Gay-Z? Hahaha, I am sure RP has a better all-star line up, especially when you have KRS-One backing you up.
