Musicians are not exactly lining up to perform at Trump's inauguration. After a member of his transition team incorrectly announced that Elton John would be performing, and then Elton John set the record straight and said "absolutely not," the question turned to: who actually wants to play at this thing?

According to The Guardian, when Elton John found out that "Tiny Dancer" and "Rocket Man" were frequently played at Trump rallies, he suggested they, "ask Ted f*cking Nugent," so maybe we have a clue there as to who could grace the stage on inauguration day? Other clues include that it's probably not Arrowsmith or Neil Young.

Here are some of their best pun-filled takes on musicians who would want to associate with the President-elect's platform.
