Now Nekrogoblikon and Ghoul are Running for President, Too
Not to be outdone by Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, who announced his own “presidential run” over the weekend in response to Kanye West’s headline-grabbing publicity effort, members of Nekrogoblikon and Ghoul have also announced U.S. presidential runs of their own.
Both bands’ announcements actually preceded Shinoda’s, proving once again that all true innovation in metal comes from the underground.
Nekrogoblikon’s presidential run comes courtesy of outspoken frontman John Goblikon. Speaking on Twitter, with a nifty graphic accompaniment, he said:
Ghoul seem to be running as a band — which would certainly be a first, multiple presidents! — and posted a similarly worded statement aping Kanye’s:
Obviously both Goblikon and Ghoul are joking (as is Shinoda, and ultimately Kanye), but I’d back any out of that group over the schmuck currently in the Whitehouse, and I think I’d choose Goblikon out of this batch of metallers: we could use a little humor in these times, ya know?
