Nine Inch Nails, MTV part ways over Bush

quote:
LOS ANGELES - Nine Inch Nails has withdrawn from the MTV Movie Awards show after a dispute with MTV over the band's choice of backdrop.

The group, which has spoken out against the Bush administration and the war in Iraq in its music and publicly, planned to perform The Hand That Feeds in front of a picture of President Bush.

Frontman Trent Reznor says the band pulled out after MTV objected to the backdrop, which was an unaltered picture of George W. Bush.

"Apparently the image of our president is as offensive to MTV as it is to me," Reznor said in a statement on the official band website.
