Here’s Video of Beto O’Rourke Singing “Blitzkrieg Bop” in a Sheep Mask and Onesie

By now, most people who follow national politics have probably heard that Beto O’Rourke, the former Democratic congressman from El Paso who is contemplating a run for president, once played bass in a punk rock band called Foss. The punk rock ethos seemed to infuse his 2018 Senate race against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, down to O’Rourke’s DIY-style of campaigning. During the campaign, O’Rourke performed on stage with Willie Nelson, brought a fog machine to his concession speech, and filmed himself playing air drums on the steering wheel during road trips. The state Republican Party, for its part, mocked him for appearing in a dress on the cover of Foss’ album, The El Paso Pussycats.

But Foss wasn’t O’Rourke’s only musical project. Nearly a decade after Foss split up in the mid-’90s—after he had returned to El Paso, started a web design company, and taken tentative steps toward a career in local politics—O’Rourke and a few friends (including other ex-members of Foss) formed two other bands. One was a rock group called Fragile Gang. The other was a cover band called The Sheeps, which performed punk rock classics. Band members wore a variety of disguises on stage—most notably, tight onesies and sheep masks. ...

At a December 2003 show at El Paso’s now-closed Moontime Pizza, O’Rourke, the group’s rhythm guitarist, wore a white onesie and tried on a bad Kiwi accent for good measure:

Sorry...

He should have been arrested for noise pollution and impersonating a musician.

Those aren't "onsies", they're long-johns.  Continued infantilization of our society.

And, hopefully there's no video, but I've been known to sing along to Blitzkrieg Bop in the car. Bop, bop.

  • Cruz 2016- a Constitutional Conservative at last!
Can't be unseen. He was wearing long johns and not a onesie which I think of what babies wear and is legless. What an image!

Presidential material for sure.
Principles matter. Words matter.
