Last Tuesday, America gained a President it didn’t particularly want, and today it has lost four Presidents that served the country faithfully — albeit in an on-and-off fashion — since 1993. That’s right: beloved’90s alt-rock group The Presidents of the United States of America have officially announced that they are resigning as a band, effective immediately. Frontman Chris Ballew posted a statement on Facebook today confirming the breakup and expressing his appreciation to fans: “Thanks for all the singing and clapping and happy times and WE LOVE YOU!”
The timing of such a note is obviously suspicious, as the Presidents of the United States have been quiet for more than a year. It would seem that the Office of the President just doesn’t hold the same prestige as it once did, making the group’s decision to permanently vacate the premises an easy one.
