A recent comment by ladymisskirroyale from this past week’s Saturday Night Shut-In got me thinking about what our long-discussed, long-awaited, direly-needed President of Rock’s Cabinet might look like. Two positions may be filled from the outset. See what you think, and see if you can help us select the future appointees of our eventual President of Rock’s Cabinet.

  • Secretary of the Interior: Adrian Belew
  • Secretary of Defense: Skunk Baxter
  • Secretary of State:
  • Attorney General:
  • Secretary of Agriculture:
  • Secretary of Commerce:
  • Secretary of Labor:
  • Secretary of Health and Human Services:
  • Secretary of Housing and Urban Development:
  • Secretary of Transportation:
  • Secretary of Energy:
  • Secretary of Veterans Affairs:
  • Secretary of Homeland Security:

  22 Responses to “Rock ‘n Roll Cabinet”

  1. •Secretary of Agriculture — John Mellencamp

  2. Secretary of Commerce: Gene Simmons

  3. Secretary of State: David Byrne

  4. Secretary of Labor: Seger!

  5. alexmagic

    Secretary of Labor: Seger
    Secretary of Housing and Urban Development: Suggs
    Secretary of Veteran Affairs: Brown Mark from The Revolution
    Secretary of Energy: Rollins

  6. Attorney General: Ruben Blades. He has a masters in international law from Harvard. He’s not a U.S. citizen though, so even if he isn’t barred from taking the post, his nomination will be a political hot potato, in which case I suggest Mike Connell the guitar player from the Connells or Greg Demos from Guided by Voices, both of whom are practicing attorneys.

  7. bostonhistorian

    Secretary of Labor should be James Brown, the hardest working man in show business.

  8. •Secretary of Homeland Security: Ted Nugent
    C’mon that’s a no-brainer.

  9. hrrundivbakshi

    Secretary of Health and Human Services: Sly Stone
    Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs: Elvis Presley

  10. I nominate Kristofferson for Sec of VA, Randy Newman Atty Gen, Rivers Cuomo Sec. of Ed, Aimee Mann Sec of State, and Sammy Hagar Sec of Transportation


  11. mockcarr

    Secretary of War – Edwin Starr

  12. tonyola

    Secretary of Health and Human Services – Iggy Pop. “Kids, do drugs and you’ll look like me.”

    Secretary of Homeland Security: Ted Nugent.

  13. I dunno, I think compared to your average 65 yr. old American male, Iggy’s in pretty good physical condition.

    Secretary of Agriculture: Willie Nelson
    Secretary of Veterans Affairs: Bruce Springsteen
    Secretary of Homeland Security: Anyone BUT Ted Nugent!

  14. tonyola

    Yes, but Iggy still has a face that could curdle milk and peel wallpaper at 100 paces. Only Keith Richards can match him in the visible-past-damage department.

  15. All good so far:
    Transportation: Mitch Ryder
    H. U. D.: Chuck D.
    Is there still a Bureau of American Indian Affairs? If so: Mark Lindsey

  16. ladymisskirroyale

    Dept. of Labor – Kristin Hersh. Hasn’t she had like 4 or 5 kids now? And her songs often voice what difficult work it is to be a mom.

  17. ladymisskirroyale

    And for Dept. of Health and Human Services – Pamela Des Barres

  18. Secretary of State – John Lennon
    Secretary of Energy – Angus Young
    Secretary of Agriculture – Robert Plant (Fiona Apple as Deputy)
    Attorney General – Junior Brown
    I’m thinking a different angle on Transportation – Jimi Hendrix
    Housing and Urban Development – John Mellencamp (something about those little pink houses)
    Secretary of Love – Barry white
    Homeland Security – Commander Cody
    Secretary of Commerce – 50 Cent
    Secretary of Labor – Colin Hay
    Health and Human Services – Dr. John

  19. Excellent choice, LMK. Doesn’t Mo Tucker have a brood of kids as well?

  20. Angus Young, AC/DC, energy. Get it?
    Colin hay, Men at Work, labor. Get it?

    I though for sure I’d get a rise out of those.

  21. I think Angus Young is perfect for that job.

  22. gregg: ‘different angle on transportation’ – bwahahahahahaaaaa
