Matthew Middendorf is an Austin, Texas based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with a decidedly unique approach to his craft. The multi-genre artist describes his songs as “different.” With titles like “Chocolate the Complete Food,” “Jesus Must Be in Hell” and “Armed to the Teeth Elementary School,” he writes tunes that are both fun and provocative. In the process he mixes Rock, Jazz and any other sounds the songs may require.
“Worst President Ever” is the latest single from Matthew Middendorf, released to SoundCloud on March 12, 2021. The track is a sort of Alt-Rock alternate history, sung from the perspective of the 29th United States President, Warren G. Harding. The song tells the tale of Harding and the 15th president James Buchanan joining forces to find someone to supplant them as the historically worst presidents ever.
You can probably see where this is going. The two travel through time to find an unwitting, egomaniacal idiot named Donal J Trump. They then use their time travelling presidential influence to steal the 2016 election for their patsy who would-be king. It is a fun and very silly song set to an Alternative Rock guitar romp and a chaotic, Acid Jazz drum groove.
