Iran Arrests 230 Youths Attending 'Satanic' Rock Concert

"Iran arrested more than 200 music fans at an underground rock concert that one official called a 'satanic' gathering and authorities accused the youths of breaking Islamic law. A witness said Sunday that police raided the concert as it was ending late Wednesday near the town of Karaj, some 30 miles west of the capital. 'Police detained the young people who had gathered to enjoy music in a private orchard,' said the witness, who requested anonymity for fear of government retaliation. The arrests come during a recent crack down on "immoral behavior" in Iran, where holding mixed parties or concerts without permission has been forbidden since the 1979 Revolution that brought hardline Shiite Muslim clerics to power..."

Satan Invades Iran

Didn't he do that somewhere closer to the 7th century.... Oh that was Islam.  (Close enough).

I guess he must be insecure about his strength there, which is why he is re-invading with Rock 'n Roll, the catalyst for so many great revolutions...

Thank for the article.  I wish I could have attended this show.  I wonder what songs were played and how well they were played by the various performers.  The article mentions the presence of drugs, alcohol and topless ladies too (oh, and 'topless' as in no headscarf, get your mind out of the gutter child of the great satan!).  I got a laugh that the concert promoters were inviting people to hear how "Devil Worshippers" perform music.  I hope they werent serious and were just being cheeky though.  We should never try to hide from the fact that "soul music something we can all relate too" -jurassic 5!
