Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s husband Chasten shared a Spotify playlist of songs that he, Pete and the rest of Team Buttigieg put together, which includes “Tweezer Reprise” by Phish. Chasten provided the compilation, titled “Buttijams,” on Friday for those traveling to South Bend, Indiana for Peter’s campaign kickoff event. Additionally, “Tweezer Reprise” was played at the rally on Sunday at the former Studebaker Building in his hometown, where the South Bend Mayor announced his campaign.

Pete tweeted his appreciation for “Tweezer Reprise” in 2017, attended a show at Deer Creek in 2000 according to an aide and recently told TMZ Phish and the Dave Matthews Band were his favorite bands during his time in high school and college.

Team Buttigieg went with the studio version of “Tweezer Reprise” from Phish’s 1992 major label debut A Picture Of Nectar for inclusion on “Buttijams.” Other songs selected for the playlist include The Avett Brothers‘ “Ain’t No Man,” The Who‘s “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” Beck‘s “I’m So Free,” David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel,” Aretha Franklin’s “Think” and “Never Going Back Again” by Fleetwood Mac.
