The “supergroup” Black President was the idea of Bad Religion’s Greg Hetson and Goldfinger’s Charlie Paulson, and officially came into the works circa 2005. The same year, a well-spoken African-American was serving in the United States Senate -- this same African-American was elected the 44th president of the United States in late 2008, somewhere near the time that Hetson left the band. Paulson should have immediately took note of the loss of irony and changed the band’s name to something a little less moronic, but instead, he and Black President released a less-than-promising debut that borderlines mainstream garbage.
