Politico just posted Obama's new campaign playlist—I didn't know there was such a thing, but there you are—and it looks like Portland's own AgesandAges made the cut. Apparently our president enjoys rocking out to the massed chorale of their excellent song "No Nostalgia."

Actually, this is a damn perfect presidential campaign song for Obama. Take a look at the lyrics:

When I walk, there will be no
Speculation, no act to follow
And my words, they will be strong
Find your way, feel free to come
AgesandAges join other music heavyweights on the playlist, including Wilco, Bruce Springsteen, Aretha Franklin, and—wait. Two songs by Darius Rucker?

Peep the whole playlist, and listen to AgesandAges below.
