Best politically active local musician everyone loves to hate but should respect (2008)


For whatever reason, MOBY seems to inspire irritation—not only Eminem has dissed him. Maybe it's because he's a vegan, or because he's rich and you're not, or maybe it's the Christian and no-drinking thing. But Moby is more politically active than just about any other high-profile musician in New York. He will go to Democratic fundraisers and appear for free, and he will speak his mind against Bush and for Kerry, even if it means making more people hate him.
