These artists have millions of fans to share political views with, unlike everyone else who can only annoy their Facebook friends.
Music has always been closely tied to politics. As far back as the 19th century Beethoven’s third symphony was written as a super punk, anti-Napoleon tune. With hours left in the election, maybe some of these musician’s political endorsements will sway any (somehow) undecided voters out there.
