Hillary Clinton Jumps on the EDM Bandwagon

Not one to let Marco Rubio win the coolness primary, Hillary Clinton enlists her interns find some EDM for her to play on the campaign trail.

We told you yesterday about Marco Rubio throwing some love to dance music in the past, and it left many wondering if it was a ploy to appeal to younger voters. As it turns out, Rubio has brought up dance music on numerous occasions and talked about it in a surprisingly authentic tone. He has frequently looked askance at interviewers who think he’s speaking gibberish when he discusses Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Avicii, and more. In an experience many of us have shared with the candidate, he even dismissed a CNN reporter who described EDM as “party music“. Now, Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wants to pull a “me too!” and embrace dance music.

No word on the response.

Somebody on her campaign who must know a thing or two about dance music decided to reach out to rising star Throttle to use his track “Together” on the campaign trail. While Hillary Clinton would probably respond with “what’s a Throttle?” or “I never sent or received any classified information” when asked about this, it seems unlikely that Throttle will give out a high profile rejection like we’ve seen Marco Rubio endure in the past. Does this make Hillary seem hip yet, or do you see right through it? We can only hope that at some point somebody manages to ask her about Throttle at some point and see what she says.
