Irrelevant Censorship Sucks

In certain degree it works, but irrelevant censorship f*** up.

Machine Head’s Robb Flynn about Disney’s Cancellation:

“When a corporation like Disney forces the cancellation of your show because your style of music is ‘inappropriate,’ it really sticks in your craw, especially when you think about what’s playing at the theater right next door. For example, now playing at the Downtown Disney AMC Theater are a number of movies rated ‘R’ for, among other things, ‘strong sexual content,’ ‘strong horror violence,’ ‘intense sequences of graphic brutal violence,’ nudity and drug use. It goes without saying that a heavy metal show is (with the exception of violence) fairly tame by those standards. Hell, even by the oft-assumed worst-case scenarios preached by ignorant conservative groups about ‘the evils of heavy metal,’ the genre still falls well short of offering its fans the sort of influences present in the major motion pictures playing a mere hop, skip and a jump away.

Yeah, again it sucks. I totally agree.
