Slipknot, Korn, Nickelback, Smashmouth….and Creed have all been banned from being played at the U.S. Department of Defense Command Post. Sure, Nickelback and Creed are the butt of a lot of jokes, but I mean, come on man! Slipknot and Korn?!!?!!!?? One commenter said putting Slipknot on the same list as Nickelback “is blasphemy, and not the cool kind of blasphemy that the band would appreciate.” U.S Army W.T.F! Moments spokesman Mike Trysom said the memo is real, but the sentiment may be ‘fake news.’ The term ‘Real’ depends on your outlook,” Trysom told The Huffington Post. “Do we really think this commander signed that memo as a lawful order? No, not at all. It was likely a joke or a prank he played on one of the platoons under his command. The memo is valid and in the right format… some of our commenters are not as smart as they think they are.”
Joke or not, Trysom said the commander’s sentiments struck a chord with him and the page’s other editors.
“We think it was pretty funny, and … we approve of his prohibitions, especially. Nickleback!” he said. Apparently they haven’t heard the new Nickelback cause its pretty rocking! LOL
