Axis of Evil Mutherfuckers!

Time to get the band back together.

From the Voice of Korea

"If you are a band playing any kind of rock, including heavy metal, then you can participate 'ROCK FOR PEACE' in Pyong Yang, the capital city of North Korea. This is the very first time in history that North Korea allows western musicians in the heart of DPRK territory to play capitalist popular music.

There are few restrictions and conditions on participation but any band will be considered even though you are from USA. The lyrics should not contain admirations on war, sex, violence, murder, drug, rape, non-governmental society, imperialism, colonialism, racism, anti-DPRK, and anti-socialism. "

Non-governmental society? What if it's not based in DPRK? Anarchy in the UK, for example? Would that be OK?

'Anarchy in the UK' would be a bad choice in DPRK because I suspect it would be representative of nothing but the unadulterated unleashing of *the* market economy constituted as both an actual form of reason and *the* power which destroys reason. Anarchism is thus to be conceived as the pure unmediated yearning of Romantic reactionaries whose autonomous anarchistic philosophy only expresses that which the bourgeois themselves already experience themselves: that is, in their world freedom tends toward organized anarchy. So...

Try Communism in the UK instead

Some of these in the moshpit would be good.

Why would anyone expect to get prior clearance on the content of their gig anyway? You get to find out in hindsight, when they are gassing you in your cell.
