Rap group the Black Eyed Peas have found an unusual new member - American senator John McCain.

McCain, who ran for President in the 2000 Republican primary, made the announcement after being handed the Rock The Nation award from Randy Jackson at last week's (08JUN05) ROCK THE VOTE awards.

Declaring himself proud of the accolade, he revealed he was "prouder to announce that Fergie has asked me to be the fifth member of the BLACK EYED PEAS."

He even has a name in mind, in keeping with the ELEPHUNK band's imaginative monickers: "Funkmaster McCain might be good."
