Rock Stars You Probably Didn't Realize Are Republican

List Rules
Only rock stars who are Republican, no other genres.

Conservatism isn't something you tend to associate with the hard core rockers of history. However, this Republican rock stars list is a sampling of the most conservative rock bands in the world and might just change the way you think of them. Look no further for a full list of conservative rock bands and rock stars, complete with photos. Right wing rock stars and conservative metal bands can all be found here, from Elvis Presley to Alice Cooper - you're sure to find a few surprising names!

Did you realize Alice Cooper was a Republican? Ted Nugten and Gene Simmons are also rock and roll Republicans. With the likes of Lee Ving and Meat Loaf on this list, it just goes to show that you can't judge a book by its cover. Some of the most notorious rock names are on this list. You won't see any conservative women rock stars, as this list is made up of male right wing musicians.

This list includes people who have declared themselves to be full-fledged Republican rockers, as well as Republican rock bands and musicians, all of whom have at one point publicly supported a Republican candidate or candidates. Check out the rockers from conservative bands below.
