It's Only Rock and Roll


Rap-rock band Linkin Park will play Malaysia, but there may be a few changes in the show. The Ministry of Culture and Arts approved a concert by the group, but it insists on just a few restrictions. "Male artists must cover their bodies from the chest to knee level," the ministry said. "The artist must not display rough, raunchy actions that conflict with pure values, such as leaping around, screaming or throwing something from the stage to the audience." The government also warned the group against sexually provocative speech or gestures and clothing that can be considered "obscene, linked to drugs, or related to negative elements." Should be a rockin' show.
