"I'm Mike Huckabee and I Approve of Torche": Fox News Loves Miami Metal Band
For reasons no one quite understands, Fox News continues to air Red Eye, a somewhat satirical talk show, at 3 o'clock in the morning every day. Monday night host Greg Gutfield welcomed members of beloved Miami-based metal band Torche, and had a bit of a surprise for them. Apparently former Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is a big big fan. He loves them so much he says their music is like "if you wrapped a Percocet in a slab of bacon, fed it to a woolly mammoth, and shouted 'Dance Hairy Boy, Dance.'" Seriously.
No one seems to be sure if that is actually Huckabee's voice, but considering the guy has a show on Fox News and has participated in Red Eye's shenanigans before, it probably is.
I'm not sure what to expect next. Sarah Palin repping for 2 Live Crew? "It's just good wholesome, American made music, you betcha."
Apparently Gutfiled is a big, big metal fan and can have whoever the hell he wants on because it's on at 3 o'clock in the morning.
