Man...soviet radio must suck...

A document that has been going around the internet lists off bands banned on soviet radio. It's a bummer that folks can jam out to these bands, however the reasons are hilarious/outrageous.

Banned:

  • Alice Cooper - Violence/Vandalism
  • Black Sabath - Violence/Religious Obskurantism
  • Nazereth - Violence/Religious Mysticism/Sadism
  • Scorpions -  Violence
  • Pink Floyd - Interfering the foreign policy of the USSR
  • Talking Heads - Myth of Soviet military danger
  • Sex Pistols - Punk/Violence
  • Kiss - Nationalism/Violence
  • Iron Maiden - Violence
  • Judas Priest - Anti-Comunisim/Racism
  • AC/DC - Neofascism/Violence
  • The Ramones - Punk
  • 10CC - Neofascism

Also on the list of banned artist were the Village People...so they made at least one good call.
