Who Would Be In Your Band Made Up of Only U.S. Presidents?
Happy Independence Day! In honor of the holiday, we thought we’d have some patriotic fun.
Imagine all of the U.S. Presidents we’ve had…and now imagine creating a rock band comprised of just Presidents. (FYI: The band name? The Commanders of Rock and their debut album would be titled Hail to Us, but we digress.)
So, who would be the frontman, lead and rhythm guitarists, bassist and drummer? Believe it or not, we put a lot of thought into this, and we think we came up with a stellar band.
Disagree? Tell us who would be in your band in the comments!

George W. Bush (Lead Guitarist) & George H.W. Bush (Rhythm Guitarist): Think of them along the lines of Angus and Malcolm Young. W. provides the performance element, but H.W. is the one in charge. Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images
James Buchanan (Bassist): Bassists don’t usually get a lot of attention from the ladies, and since Buchanan is the only President in American history to remain unmarried throughout his administration, it seemed like a good fit. Photo by National Archive/Newsmakers
Dwight D. Eisenhower (Drummer): Bands look to their drummer to count them down into a song and be the backbone of any good hit. Since Eisenhower was a five-star general in the Army during World War II, we’re confident he’d be able to hold things down. Photo by Keystone/Hulton Archive/Getty Images
