On "He Lied About Death," from his band's 2005 opus Set Yourself on Fire, Stars co-frontman Torquil Campbell rants about our current president, calling him "an ape in a cage" and hoping his "drunken daughters are gay." So, on the weekend the Democrats picked their V.P. candidate, it wasn't surprising to hear Campbell chime in on this year's election. In a self-described "conditional dedication" of the song "Soft Revolution," Campbell said, "Dear Barack Obama, I dedicate this song to you, but only if you don't become a cocksucking motherfucker like all of the rest."
