    US Band Bloodhound Gang Booted from Russia Concert.....

    Seems the Russians don't take kindly to defacing their Flag. So they sent them packing, and may even press Charges against these guys. All coming with heightened tensions over Snowden and us talking about skipping talks with Putin.

    The American rock group Bloodhound Gang was kicked out of a Russian music festival and pelted with eggs after videos emerged of its bass player shoving a Russian flag down his pants at a recent concert in Ukraine. Russian prosecutors are even considering whether to open a criminal case in the matter, which comes amid a rise in U.S.-Russian tensions.

    Videos posted online of Wednesday's concert in the Ukrainian city of Odessa show bass player Jared Hasselhoff pushing the Russian white, blue and red flag down the front of his pants and pulling it out the back. He then shouted to the audience: "Don't tell Putin," a reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    The incident outraged the Russian government. Maria Minina, a spokeswoman for the weeklong Kubana festival in southern Russia, said Saturday that the band's headlining performance the previous evening had been canceled because of its treatment of the flag.

    The American band is known for its sexually explicit songs, including "The Bad Touch," with its unforgettable lyrics: "You and me, baby, ain't nothin' but mammals, so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel."

    Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky tweeted Friday night that he had spoken with officials in the southern Krasnodar region, known as Kuban. "Bloodhound Gang is packing its bags," he said in the Twitter post. "These idiots will not perform in Kuban."

    Hasselhoff was questioned Saturday by police, according to the Russian Interior Ministry, which said prosecutors have been asked to decide if the musician could be charged with defaming the Russian flag.....snip~

    Here is some footage on it.....also the week before they were dropping the F-Bomb on Russia.



    Stunt, that appears to have literally wiped a band off stage. American punk-rock group The Bloodhound Gang have been scattered with eggs and tomatoes, beaten and banned from performing in Russia after their base player shoved the country's flag down his trousers during a gig in Ukraine

    Personally, I hope he is detained in Russia, and they decide to press charges. Talk about an asswipe.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Hiya Maggie. Yeah.....one would think being invited to another country as a Guest. People would be more aware of their surroundings. Guess they thought they were being cool. They got lucky if they got booted out of the country. Any charges after they were kicked out. Is to make sure they don't return.

    Bah, our clever plot to rid ourselves of Bloodhound Gang has failed.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Re: US Band Bloodhound Gang Booted from Russia Concert.....

    The most clever Thing about "The Bad Touch" is that it's not actually sexually explicit. There are zero obscenities or descriptions of sex. But the song still manages to be filthy.

    Anyway, they defaced the Russian flag in Ukraine,so they broke no law.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
