Anti-War Concert

Lineup set for anti-war concert -

Among the performers scheduled to play March 20 are R.E.M. frontman Michael
Stipe, Bright Eyes, Rufus Wainwright, Fischerspooner, Public Enemy's Chuck D,
Devendra Banhart and Peaches, Billboard.com reported.

Notably absent from the lineup will be: 75th Ranger Regiment, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th & 10th Special Forces Groups; Navy DevGroup; AFSOC; and the entire 18th Airborne Corp. They seem to be all tied up with activities that aren't completely self-indulgent. And funniest thing, they're all absent by choice. Kind of ironic, isn't it.

Ouch. Somebody didn't forget to take their bitter pill, did they now? Michael Stipe is a very exciting performer and has plenty of business showing his appreciation for the fighting men and women overseas.

Did I just defend Michael Stipe? I am SO sorry.

Yikes, you are definitely going to need to redeem yourself after that one.

Come up with something funny to do with monkeys, midgets, or boobies and all will be forgivin.

Chuck D. & Peaches huh ??

Maybe Chuck D. will play one of his peace loving songs like: "Burn Hollywood Burn"... "Fight the Power"... or the famous peace anthem "By the time I get to Arizona"... Let's all hold hands and RIOT!!

Peaches does have a good song that was in the "Lost in Translation" movie... "Fuck the Pain Away"... pretty good song...

Anyways... I love Public Enemy, and REM has some kewl stuff... but I love the freedom of the USA most of all... so I choose to ignore their anti-war crap...

I agree, Public Enemy was actually pretty good. It just amazes me that these people think they can have a serious affect on geo-political issues. Just shut up and sing.

Maybe all of these a-hole musicians should immigrate to a country where the sharia version of islam is practiced. Then they might have an understanding of when a good time to stand and fight is.
