Video: Danica Roem Shouts Out Richmond Metal Band on Comedy Central

Danica Roem, the first openly transgender person elected to the Virginia legislature, is already doing her part to promote Virginia metal. Appearing on Comedy Central's "The Opposition with Jordan Klepper" she was asked about her favorite music.

The award-winning Northern Virginia journalist's quick answer was "old school thrash metal." She then gave a proper shoutout to Richmond band, Municipal Waste, for bringing the kick-ass genre back to prominence.

Before that, the host tried to entice Roem into bashing her vanquished opponent, Del. Bob Marshall. But she took the high road instead, noting that voters of the 13th district did not elect her "to be rude" but rather to fix Route 28, to fight Dominion Energy's power tower proposal and to insure 3,000 uninsured people. Or in her words, to "make some damn progress" as opposed to singling out and stigmatizing people she was elected to serve.

You can watch the entire segment below:

Waste's latest album, "Slime and Punishment" is available here.
