Politics Aside, We Can All Agree That Ted Cruz Has Lame Taste In Music

Newly minted Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz appeared on CBS This Morning to begin the long scramble for the White House. It’s his first full day on the campaign trail, and he’s already pissed off a huge demographic— rock ’n’ roll fans. The GOP Senator from Texas has said that although he used to be a big fan of classic rock music, he was disappointed in how the rock community responded to 9/11. As a result, he’s now a die-hard country fan.

“I grew up listening to classic rock and I’ll tell you sort of an odd story,” he told host Gayle King. “My music tastes changed on 9/11. And it’s a very strange—I actually, intellectually, find this very curious, but on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded. And country music collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me and I have to say, it—just as a gut level, I had an emotional reaction that says, ’These are my people.’ And so ever since 2001 I listen to country music, but I’m an odd country music fan because I didn’t listen to it prior to 2001.”
