As America’s resident cool uncle, Joe Biden, prepares to pack up his aviators and leave the White House in January, America badly needs a vice president who can replicate his fantastically chill, boomer-friendly aura. Enter worthy replacement Tim Kaine, who just released a playlist of his favorite songs on Spotify via Hillary Clinton’s official account. And what do we have here? Oh, you know, the standard dad-rock stuff with a bit of a modern twist, which includes some classic Replacements songs, a Kinks jam, a Who deep cut, and even an Alabama Shakes banger. Too bad he couldn’t make a campaign stop at Desert Trip — that harmonica of his could’ve gone to good use.
