    Crunk-metal band Brokencyde, easily one of the most vilified and derided acts on the planet, were the subject of a hoax story earlier today. A fake site that looked eerily similar to TMZ reported that the band were being held on drug, rape and child porn charges after their tour vehicle was pulled over in New Mexico for mild speeding. The story said that cops boarded the bus, smelled weed and found a band member cavorting with a 14-year-old female passenger. News of the story ignited and began popping up on several credible media outlets, since it was indeed a salacious story, but it turned out not to be true. Must be a slow day at news desks for a story like this to start circulating.

    Word is a student in Canada started the story. Said student must really hate the band. And have a lot of free time, too.
