In his early years, O’Rourke was an aspiring musician who played in a punk rock band called Foss alongside Cedric Bixler-Zavala of The Mars Volta and At the Drive-In fame. While running for senate in Texas last fall, he received support from Willie Nelson, Spoon, and The National, and was captured air drumming to The Who while going through a Whataburger drive-thru.
