RICHMOND, Va. — Passionately expressing his desire to hear one of his favorite songs live, former Gov. Terry McAuliffe screamed for the classic ballad “Wagon Wheel” to be played halfway through punk band NOFX’s performance at the Punk in Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival, sources confirmed Saturday. Written by Bob Dylan and Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show, the popular folk song is rumored to be a favorite of McAuliffe’s.
“Wagon Wheeeell!!” the shirtless politician incoherently yelled at the top of his lungs between chugs of PBR. “Wooooooo yeahh! Rock me momma like the wind and the rain, rock me Richmond like a south bound train! Fuckin’ play it, Mike! Play that shit!”
Lead vocalist “Fat Mike” Burkett seemed confused about the request, noting that it was a first for the band. “We’ve never heard that one before,” he stated after the show, adding that he wasn’t even sure if the band knew how to play it. “Whatever, it beats hearing ‘Freebird!’ at every festival, I guess.”
The rumored 2020 Democratic presidential nominee was reportedly last seen stumbling toward the mosh pit during the NOFX anthem “Stickin In My Eye.”
