Nine Inch Nails have refused to perform at next week's MTV Movie Awards due to the clash they have with the network over President Bush image
MTV must be upset in hearing that rock band Nine Inch Nails have on Friday said they canceled plans to perform on next week's MTV Movie Awards. The band has, at first, set as a performance backdrop at the event, singing their latest hit single "The Hand That Feeds."
Yet, if MTV still wants them to perform, then the network should allow them to sing the song along with what the band claims as an unmolested image of George W. Bush as the backdrop. Apparently, MTV tend to percieve the use of the image as something offensive. Further the network explains that they had been "uncomfortable with their performance being built around a partisan political statement."
Let it be. Though Nine Inch Nails won't perform on next week's MTV Movie Awards, still people can enjoy The Foo Fighters performance, who is set to replace the industrial rock band.
