banning some hard rock bands in the US

NBC announced today that the M.A.H.R. (Mothers Against Hard Rock) Foundation is trying to outlaw The Used and My Chemical Romance from 45 states across America. They are petitioning for it as we speak and if they get more signatures then those against it, then the bands (as well as many others including From First To Last, Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold, and Darkest Hour.) will be banned from most of the United States.

okay this really pisses me off. i mean i know for a fact that these bands have helped so many people. wouldnt this be against the commandment of freedom of speech? cause like singing as talking? shouldnt these bands have the right to sing what they want and for it to be allowed in the US?

sorry if this is the wrong board... i just thaught id share this...



After all this has passed,
i still will remain
After i've cried my last,
there'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today,
Someday i'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain

PM me anytime for anything <3

any publicity is good publicity in the world of music, if those bands were banned from most of the USA there'd be an explosion in each bands record sales, just look at what happened when punk was effectively banned in the UK, without the ban a band like the sex pistols would never had achieved the level of fame they assertained for the pure fact that people want what they can't have.

the only outcome i can see from this situation is that the bands increase in their popularity.

Ha ha, that is pretty ridiculous (i'm on about My Chem being called "hard rock" =P) But yeah, I don't see the point in banning them, people will wanna listen more. Jeez, first it's rock, before we know it it'll be rap, hip hop, indie & pop, the only thing they'll want us to listen to is James Blunt...



You can't lose hope when it's hopeless.
You gotta hope more,
then put your fingers in your ears and go,
"Blah blah blah blah!"


I miss you Pip ♥

That's insane! I don't even know what to say to that. I love Atreyu and A7X too. And I think it's hilarious that they think that's hard rock....they obviously haven't heard much. Oy vey.

I agree with Dave entirely - and the Sex Pistols are a good example.

But banning MCR and The Used?? What the **** is going on??

I think music counts as free speech (just like pornography does) and the most they'd be able to do is make it less available to people under 18...

(but that's just my opinion)

Taken from The Rolling Stone - The Week In Wierd 22 July 2005

Protest groups are a dime a dozen these days, but every once in a while one comes along that we feel compelled to single out for fighting the good fight. A group calling itself Mothers Against Hard Rock has emerged from the other side of 1956 to announce a plan to rid the world of bands its members find offensive -- a list that, as of right now, is limited to the Used and My Chemical Romance. While we have a hard time arguing with the moms in question about their collective taste -- vomit-prone Mormon whiners don't deserve much slack in our book, either -- we won't be joining their ranks until they begin to take on the real enemy. Ladies, please allow us to introduce you to the collected works of Mr. Fred Durst . . .

i love you rolling stone.

yet another case of overreaction to a social problem. I mean none of the bands described are hard rock but still the point is that people always try to find something to blame for society's ills. For example gun crime in america everything from violent games to heavy metal music is blamed for it but the simple fact is it's easy to get get a gun in america and the media there does all it can to frighten it's people. The other thing i'd say is that by trying to ban it or whatever you automatically make it more popular.

MAHR?
MAC?
I think someone took the South Park movie a little too seriously.

And anyway how can you ban music? Like... how? People can get it on the internet and they can't tell shops what CDs they can and can't sell.
This is so retarded it's comical.



How many ticks left in that clockwork heart?
