Top 10 Rock and Metal Musicians Who Would Make Great PoliticiansMetal_Treasure Lets create the best government ever.
This list is inspired by Fretto list "Top Ten Metal and Rock Musicians that Would Be Good Presidents".
I am enlarging the idea because some people may not be the best choices for presidents but would be great ministers or other types of political leaders.
The Top Ten
Theme song of the government: Hallowed Be Thy Name (Iron Maiden)
Personal motto: "You'll take my life but I'll take yours, too" (The Trooper, Iron Maiden)
So potential assassinators, think again!
Note: Some countries have a Prime Minister and President / King / Queen.
Monarchies have a Prime Minister and a King / Queen. Republics have a Prime Minister and a President. In the US President has also functions of a Prime Minister. - Metal_Treasure
This list is awesome! And I admit mine was not that good. Matt Barlow is such a great guy who'd be a great minister of internal affairs.
