Congradulations! You've been elected President!

Can you tell us five bands that would play at your inaugural ball?

Edit: Don't have to be American bands! Siousxie Sue would play mine, and she ain't a Yank!

Great! Nick Cave will be the central musical guest then. Also performing are Tom Waits, David Bowie, Prince, and Mykki Blanco for the afterparty lol.

A week or so ago, I would say Daft Punk.

Then I recently was introduced to the Mountain Goats.

Now I'm thinking about what a mashup between them would be like.

BOWIE

cant i just have him do everything? i dont need other acts to get in his way.

ETA: instead of 5 bands, the 5 bowies songs would be

suffragette city
changes
heroes
under pressure
rock n' roll with me
rebel rebel

Indigo Girls, Barenaked Ladies, Imagine Dragons, and I'd see if New Edition were willing to get back together to play the ball. I'd leave the 5th slot open for players "to be named later".

Getting myself elected President will be the hard part. If I can do that, raising a bunch of musicians from the grave will be a piece of cake.

OMG Siouxsie Sioux would be my first choice too. Then I would probably have any remaining Doors members, Lana Del Rey (she's super patriotic, okay), Britney Spears (she's America's sweetheart), and Interpol (purely because I love them and I'm sure they'd play something beautiful and dramatic).
