|10:38 pm - Banned by MTV!!! Coooooool . . .|
My friend taogroovewitch's band Dead by Wednesday has just had the video for the title single of their debut album Democracy is Dead banned from airplay on MTV and other corporate music outlets because of its politically controversial nature, according to a bulletin put out by the band from their MySpace site:
DEAD BY WEDNESDAY's video for "Democracy is Dead" was BANNED!
Yes, that is correct, DBW's video was banned from being played on Fuse TV, MTV network, & the Audiri.com web site due to its controversial & graphic nature! Directors & rep's from the company's refused to comment regarding the issue but one did say that it was "highly politically driven & not appropriate for their viewers." Oh well...
You can see the video on Dead by Wednesday's MySpace page. It's also on their CD, which is available from FYE, Tower Records and other record stores.
Current Mood: annoyed
Current Music: "Democracy is Dead" by Dead by Wednesday
