Beastie Boys Announce Voter Awareness Shows; Also Claim McCain Fathered Terrorist Babies in Top-Secret Ménage à Quatre with Chemical Ali, Carlos the Jackal, and the ghost of Timothy McVeigh [Wow, thanks GOP! Fabricating Conspiracy IS fun!]

Perennial good time candidates Beastie Boys have announced shows as part of their "Swing State Voter Awareness Tour." Can't pronounce "vote?" Vote! Do you regularly abuse the elderly? Vote! Are you using 12 aliases to claim government benefits and are in hiding from child support collectors? America needs your vote(s)! Vote, vote vote! Before that, these shows should entertain your mind as you ponder how you want the next four years and the future of the United States to look. Given the forum, Obama terrorist-cahoots claims will be at a minimum, Republican scorn at a maximum.

All yuks aside, Beastie Boys rear their charged heads whenever they see the need to drop some political science, and around election time, they are as noisy as a herd of hiphopopotamuses. This time around is no different. The band issued this soundbite regarding the shows:

We are going to do a few shows in hopes that we can remind people to vote. This election is too important, too much is at stake to stay at home. We hope that you can come out, have a nice night, dance, sing, get your freak on, and then wake up the next morning and get everyone that you possible can to get out and vote.

A vote for Beastie Boys is a vote for democracy... and a chance to see all your favorite big-ticket artists in one (sure) shot. The dates feature heavy-hitting support from Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson, Norah Jones, Ben Harper, Santogold, Tenacious D, and Crosby & Nash (I'll assume the Canadian turncoat, Republican-turned-Democrat-turned-Monster Raving Loony Party supporter Neil Young was not available?). Representatives from Rock the Vote will be on hand to make sure that, come November 4, your vote will be soundly rocked
