    Grab a Set of Headphones, Obama

    We always suspected there was more to the White House than meets the eye. Rolling Stone says a mint condition collection of landmark albums are stored in the executive mansion…in the basement (isn’t it damp down there?). The White House Record Library contains a little bit of rock for Barack (his favorites include Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks and Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run) as well as punk, cult classics, and—gasp!—disco. The collection began in 1973, when the RIAA donated 2,000 LPs by Pat Boone, the Carpenters and John Denver. (How unfortunate.) A few years later the collection was updated by music savior/producer John Hammond, who injected some rock records for the Carter administration. No word yet if President Obama will revive the library, but if so, let’s hope Sasha and Malia steer clear, or future presidents will have them to blame for the Jonas Brothers.
