Rollins For President

America's heavy rock fans have voted HENRY ROLLINS as the preferred replacement for President GEORGE W BUSH, in a new magazine poll.

The former BLACK FLAG star beat OZZY OSBOURNE and KORN singer JONATHAN DAVIS in the REVOLVER poll to find the best candidate to run America.

The flattered rocker insists the first thing he would do if he became president would be to pull American troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Rollins says, "I visited some US military bases in Afghanistan, which was eye-opening... I asked one high-ranking officer, 'Why are we here, really?' and he goes, 'No matter what you see and hear on the news this is about oil.'

"Our quest to beat down the Taliban and to liberate Iraq is costing American lives, and we are getting chewed up by landmines and suicide bombings.

"There's going to be a lot of dead American steaming meat coming home for a long time, and it's going to drain this country of a lot of money."

In the Revolver 2004 readers poll, SLAYER were voted Best Band, OZZFEST the Best Tour, HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES the Best Film and KORN's TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR the Best Album.

BRITNEY SPEARS beat JENNIFER ANISTON in the Famous Person You'd Most Like To See Naked category.
