Michele Bachmann-Inspired Band Gets Undeserved Press, Not Unlike Michele Bachmann Herself

  youtube generation

In these tough economic times, white people are really struggling to find preexisting jobs that don’t include touching dirt or doing actual work (that is for Mexicans) and because of this, “entrepreneurship” is the cool name for trying to make a buck off a mostly lousy idea. We are guessing this is the background story, in its entirety, for the newest thing to hit desperate wannabes “rocking out” in DC’s worst intern bars.

Michele Bachmann Overdrive is a four-man rock outfit based in Great Falls, Va., that features Mike Sager, Mike Boggs, Gabriel Fry and Luke Peterson. Despite the name, the guys are quick to note that they’re definitely not a tribute band.

“Michele Bachmann Overdrive is a concept, and the concept is to have a band that captures the spirit of Michele Bachmann by being somewhat ill-prepared, not really up to the challenge ahead of it but going full speed ahead,” Mike Sager said.

The band’s motto? Its website reads: “Bringing absurd Rock and/or Roll Covers to Your Political Events, Leftist Rallies, Union Organizing Drives, Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Children’s Parties, Tea Party Torch’n’Pitchfork Terror Picnics (TP^3), Bipartisan Live-Action Role-Playing Fantasy Conventions, and Funerals.”

So far, the band hasn’t been too busy. Its only gig was in December, but with Bachmann’s higher profile, they’re hoping that business might start picking up.

Come to think of it, the 2012 election would probably be more interesting in a “battle of the bands” format, especially if it included things like “The Rick Perry Experience” and “Newt Gingrich and the Invisible Twitter Following.” Of course it would all be ruined in the end because Barack Obama would obviously insist on doing a rap battle, because of his color.

    I can't wait to see these guys at the Grammy's! My Grammy is far too old to clean her own gutters and I would hate to see her break a hip while trying.

    Go ahead and book whatever small venues you can now, boys. Your careers will be over in the bitch slap of a hummingbird.

        It's 11:06 P.M. at my house and I would like to submit your post for the "post of the day" for tomorrow so that we can all enjoy it and all its hilarious splendor. I bow down to your excellence.

    So they are essentially Wonkette: The Band.

      Romney Shames and the Shondells?

      (Or some of us who've irreversibly ruined our livers could be the backup band and be the "Jaundells.")

    Although I appreciate their concept, I don't like anything named "Michelle Bachmann…" just on principle.

    "…Barack Obama would obviously insist on doing a rap battle, because of his color."

    Careful Barry … Sarah Palin™ says she knows all the lyrics to "Rappers Delight". But that's a claim that may go unverified until she appears on RWTS* around 2014. And will still be unverified by me because if I watched, I'd have to gouge my ears out with my own hands.

    I'm in, where can I buy a tour t-shirt?
    Can we be sure this isn't a CIA psyops operation, I think Great Falls is kinda near Langley.

    The problem is, no matter how hard they try, Rightards simply have no sense of humor, soul or rhythm. The other problem is: they don't fucking know it.

    A good thing to do is name your band, "Michele Bachmann!" After you get sued or whatever and you're made to change your name…you just change it to, "Marcus Bachmann!"
    If you do this you will become famous even if you're terrible.
