Question of the day

Monday, Feb 29, 2016

* OK, that’s just a low blow…


Not to mention that it’s been done before.

* The Question: Who do you think is the governor’s favorite band? Make sure to explain your answer, please. Thanks.

    Real original Chicago State. Welcome to 2014.


  2. - Saluki - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:32 pm:

    Insane Clown Posse. Pun intended.


  3. - Stones - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:32 pm:

    Rage Against the Machine - for obvious reasons.


  4. - That Guy - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:35 pm:

    To the question, Mike and the Mechanics he controls.


  5. - Henry Francis - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:36 pm:

    Greatfull Dead. It’s what his social services funding will lead to.


  6. - Bronco Bahma - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:39 pm:

    Geez, That Guy, one student makes a sign that’s “been there, done that” and you indict the whole university.

    To the post: Credence Clearwater Revival. Fortunate Son from Willie and the Poor Boys.


  7. - Curious - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:40 pm:

    I think this group has touched on this theme before, but Rauner’s favorite band depends on who he is talking to? If he’s in Decatur, maybe it’s Springfield. If it’s in Chatham, maybe it’s Chance the Rapper. If he’s in the DuQuoin area, maybe it’s Rascal Flatts or Luke Bryan or whomever. If he’s in your own home, he will have had a staff member look at you or your spouse’s Facebook page to see if you’ve listed any favorite bands in your profile or if you’ve posted any pictures from a concert on your Instagram or Twitter account.


  8. - NixonHead - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:42 pm:

    @Stones - Second to Rage Against the Machine


  9. - Elo Kiddies - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:42 pm:

    For the inauguration, he had to bring in some marquee names to fill the joint, but he also made room for his personal fave. After a long day of governin, I bet he likes to unwind by cranking the Boat Drink Caucus.


  10. - Cubs in '16 - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:42 pm:

    Bonnie Tyler. The Gov. LOVES ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ at the beginning where it says “Turn around” He continually hits the repeat button just to hear that part while giggling uncontrollably…


  11. - Alice Cooper - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:44 pm:

    School’s out for summer, forever & been blown to pieces…we might not go back at all


  12. - National Treasure II - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:45 pm:

    Big Punisher - “Still Not a Player”


  13. - Downstate Weed Chewing Hick - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:47 pm:

    Talking Heads - “Road To Nowhere”


  14. - End - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:50 pm:

    Whitesnake….Here I go again… The words to that song fit him. “I don’t know where I’m goin’


  15. - Robert the Bruce - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:50 pm:

    Limp Bizkit.

    Poseur band whose lead singer Fred Durst fooled people for a bit, and then thankfully disappeared from relevance.


  16. - Bill F. - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:51 pm:

    When he wants some old-school, bluesy rock, he listens to the Rollin’ Stones.

    When he’s in the mood for some Irish-hued punk, he goes with Floggin’ Molly.

    For those laid back Sundays, the Travelin’ Wilburys.


  17. - Gooner - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:52 pm:

    In some ways, Rauner strikes me like Chris Christie — he’s a rich out of touch white guy, who would embrace an artist like Bruce Springsteen without realizing that Bruce’s songs attack rich out of touch white guys like Christie and Rauner.

    For a politician who is heavy on symbols (the van, the Carhartt, etc.) he does seem remarkably clueless about how others perceive him.


  18. - wordslinger - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:56 pm:

    Milli Vanilli. The words and actions don’t sync up.


  19. - @MisterJayEm - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 1:58 pm:

    Social Distortion?
    Destroyer?
    The Damned?
    Me First and the Gimme Gimmes?
    The Carpenters?

    All we know for certain is that it sure ain’t Chicago.

    – MrJM


  20. - Big Joe - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:06 pm:

    Barry Manilow, although Barry McGuire with The Eve of Destruction would be the most appropriate.


  21. - Beaner - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:07 pm:

    He is a big fan of Narcocorrido.
    Bands like Los Canelos de Durango with foot tapping hits such as “La Vida Mafiosa” (the Mafia Life) were a favorite before turning to politics. After being elected he began listening more to Los Tigres del Norte, with their unforgettable hit “El Jefe de Jefes” (The Boss of the Bosses). However, since the closure of Lutheran Socialist Services he has placed “Chingon de Chingones” (The Badass of Badasses) by Los Razos de Sacramento y Reynaldo into heavy rotation.


  22. - Rabid - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:14 pm:

    Frank Sinatra I did it my way


  23. - ILPundit - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:17 pm:

    Megadeth. Because obviously.


  24. - Carhartt Representative - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:20 pm:

    I’d say it’d have to be Cat Stevens only because the first cut is the deepest.


  25. - Name Withheld - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:24 pm:

    R.E.M - It’s the end of the world as we know it … and I feel fine.


  26. - VanillaMan - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:24 pm:

    Ice JJ Fish


  27. - Beaner - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:29 pm:

    George Thorogood and the Destoyers: Bad to the Bone


  28. - anon - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:30 pm:

    The Trashmen — “The Bird is the Word”


  29. - Rabid - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:33 pm:

    Ten years after I’d love to change the world


  30. - Vote Quimby! - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:39 pm:

    George Thorogood’s backup band The Destroyers


  31. - Anonymous - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:42 pm:

    Led Zeppelin: If it keeps on raisin’ the levee’s going to break


  32. - Earnest - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 2:46 pm:

    I’ll go with CB. He probably used one on his motorcycle while refinin’ his messagin’.


  33. - Wensicia - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 3:10 pm:

    Barry McGuire
    Eve of Destruction


  34. - Beaner - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 3:24 pm:

    Pink Floyd: We don’t need no education


  35. - Gruntled University Employee - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 3:36 pm:

    Chris Knight: It ain’t easy being me.

    “There ought to a bridge somewhere they could dedicate to me
    I’d probably come to the ceremony with a can of gasoline
    And walk on over to the other side, where I’d light a match, sit and stare
    Through the smoke and flames, wonder how I’m gonna get back”


  36. - Scamp640 - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 3:49 pm:

    Poison


  37. - Lost one - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 4:03 pm:

    Favorite Band - Big Business
    Favorite Song - I’ll Give You Something to Cry About


  38. - Ghost - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 4:08 pm:

    Far East Movement
    he likes to kick it to Like A G6.


  39. - AC - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 4:11 pm:

    Radiohead, solely because of Electioneering:

    Voodoo economics
    It’s just business


  40. - Keyrock - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 4:13 pm:

    Steppenwolf - it’s his self image.


  41. - AC - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 4:45 pm:

    Animotion known for Obsession, Bruce Rauner known for his anti union Obsession


  42. - Wensicia - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 4:46 pm:

    Scorpions


  43. - Jake From Elwood - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 5:00 pm:

    I wish he was a fan of The Fixx.


  44. - Jocko - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 5:24 pm:

    Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants to Rule the World

    “I can’t stand this indecision, married with a lack of vision.”


  45. - DuPage - Monday, Feb 29, 16 @ 6:42 pm:

    “It wasn’t me” (it was Madigan).


  46. - Jorge - Tuesday, Mar 1, 16 @ 1:06 am:

    Winger…nuff said.


  47. - Sam Weinberg - Tuesday, Mar 1, 16 @ 8:15 am:

    I’ll get this in under the wire, and merely for posterity:

    As a Dartmouth College Theta Delt, by law Bruce Rauner’s favorite singer is Jerry Jeff Walker.

    The only thing he and likely agree on.
