For those of you who don't know the song, you should probably recognize it after listening to 5 seconds of it. Done by Gary Glitter.
NFL Asks Teams to Ban Song
I was reading this on another forum, and someone pointed out a good point. You can hate an artist, but it doesn't mean you can't like the art. Art is timeless, no matter what the artist does, without art, there is no artist.
Believe it or not, Gary Glitter's conviction on child molestation charges could have consequences for Patriots fans. The former glam rocker is so disgraced that the National Football League is asking teams to refrain from playing his popular anthem ``Rock and Roll Pt. 2" on game day. ``We've communicated to the teams that due to current events we'd like them not to play the song," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed yesterday. ``The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Teams understand the reason for the request." Glitter, 62, whose given name is Paul Francis Gadd, was sentenced to three years in a Vietnamese prison for committing obscene acts with two underage girls. Pats spokesman Stacey James said the team was considering removing the song even before the league made its request. He added that the Pats are reviewing music options that would give the club a ``unique" identity.
In this case, throw the guy away forever, but his art is something that alot of people like (the song in this case), so why destroy something just because the artist is a moron?
