It's all in a name, the New Pornographers have learned. The band, who play pretty clean indie pop despite their decadent moniker, has been forced to cancel an October 15 appearance at Michigan's Calvin College due to their name. Affiliates at the Christian college received complaints about the band's name and are ruining all the fun! The school even issued a statement that read "the irony of the band's name was impossible to explain to many."
Impossible to explain to many? Are you kidding? How about people were probably closed-minded and unwilling to accept an alternate meaning of the name? A band by any other name would sound just as awesome, to borrow and paraphrase.
Should the students stage an uprising or stage a sit-in or sign petitions to have the New Pornographers perform as planned?
