The Politburo Did Not Want To Be Sedated, Or Rock and Roll All Night

Here’s a list of bands to avoid and why to avoid them from Soviet era Russia. If some of you bastards would have had access to this list, you would have likely turned out to be more upstanding comrades, er, citizens.

I’m sure they left out a lot of bands, but I’m wondering how Led Zeppelin didn’t make this list, and The Beatles surely would have stoked the ire of the Communist Part Brass for Back in the USSR.

Very Metal, And Lots Of Other Stuff

This guy Mike Strick seems to be pretty talented at making cool figurines. He’s made the Young Ones, the monsters from Where the Wild Things Are, a Voight Kampff machine, and all kinds of other cool stuff that would look nice on your mantle.
