When I saw this story, the first thing that came to mind was the episode of South Park where the parents blame Terrence and Phillip for all of the towns problems.Seems Bert McCracken the lead singer of the band The Used has been banned from playing any dates in Canada (it's not really a country anyway is it) for the next ten years due to his criminal record.

McCracken, states that his record contains misdemeanor charges from 2001-'03 for trespassing, and that Canadian authorities are blowing his 'crimes' out of proportion.

The band has plans to counter the Canadian ban with a series of "border shows" in New York, Montana, Michigan and Washington, to give Canadian fans a chance to cross the U.S. border for the concerts.

Blame Canada while you check out the videos...
