Asking Alexandria banned In Nashville, TN

Friday, March 25, 2011 3:44 PM PT


Official press release:

The UK hard rock sensation, Asking Alexandria, have blazed a trail of debauchery across North America over the course of numerous tours and their touring lifestyle is now becoming infamous, which has been heralded by many mainstream publications. The group's reckless image proved to be too much for the conservative venue Rockettown in Nashville, TN who deemed the band "too controversial" and banned them from playing their venue.

This primarily Christian area hasn't been this riled up since the days of the antichrist Marilyn Manson's notorious run, but Asking Alexandria make no apologies as rock n' roll is supposed to be dangerous and exciting. They managed to move their headlining show to the Cannery Ballroom on April 12th and welcome all the haters to come and join the party.

3/25/2011 5:36:46 PM

3/25/2011 5:45:15 PM

3/25/2011 7:45:46 PM
Wat.......

3/25/2011 8:07:38 PM
every single one of these homosexual c*nts need to firstly stop playing music and then get the fck back to england and then throw themselves off the london bridge.

3/25/2011 8:10:00 PM
My wrinkly ball sack is more controversial than this band.

3/25/2011 8:45:50 PM
Wish they could get banned everywhere. But seriously Ive heard of other tours going to Rocketown who were not at all religious, dont know why these guys are singled out?

3/25/2011 8:50:29 PM
If it takes a christian conservative area to ban these garbage bands, then I hope Illinois turns into a red state real soon.

3/25/2011 8:57:42 PM
UK trash

3/25/2011 9:07:44 PM
Nothing controversial about this gay band. Get banned from the entire country, vanflipX10

3/25/2011 9:12:08 PM
Hard rock sensation.

3/25/2011 9:38:38 PM
They got singled out cause they thought they'd be awesome and try to cover up their sexual preference and refuse to play until they got 5 girls to throw their bras on stage.

3/25/2011 10:48:03 PM
gays and Lilypickers GTFO

3/25/2011 11:36:09 PM
Stay on your own side of the world jerks

3/26/2011 6:58:53 AM
Danza is stoked

3/26/2011 8:26:57 AM
The fact that this has been posted as news is a freaking joke. That venue has banned several bands from playing there this year. Way to give this crapfest of a band far more credit then they deserve LG.

3/26/2011 9:25:45 AM
after insane amounts of sodomy the christian church got pissed that it wasn't the priests doing the sodomy and kicked asking alexandria out of tn

3/26/2011 11:28:44 AM
1 state down 49 to go

3/26/2011 12:31:03 PM
Nashville has plenty of DIY spaces for legitimate non-gay bands to play without anybody ever related to church or the law finding out about them

3/26/2011 2:49:37 PM
rock n roll lol

3/26/2011 5:40:59 PM

3/26/2011 6:57:32 PM
mongoosemayhem <-- they are doing well right now, so suck it. Go preds.

3/26/2011 6:58:38 PM
But yeah LG, great job screwing up the facts. Venue is funded by private donors. Board of directors banned them, not the venue. Get it right. The venue doesn't care about lyrics.

3/26/2011 6:59:35 PM
They were a bunch of dicks anyways... asked 13 year old girls to throw their underwear on stage.

3/26/2011 7:18:42 PM
Bizzy Bone is stoked

3/26/2011 7:55:09 PM

3/27/2011 11:21:48 PM
