Huh. - Kevinsidis

Wait what? - Userguy44

Long haired guys look awesome though.

Yeah I saw it in newspaper once.very silly reason.for long hair.I guess the man who made this decision was bald and jealous for their long hair - zxm

10 The Kinks were banned from playing in the USA from 1965-1969 because they were denied permits after a conflict with the American Federation of Musicians

This sucks. This meant that their career pretty much stalled in America, and they aren't typically mentioned in the same breath as the Beatles or the Stones whenever us Americans talk about the British Invasion. Also, no one officially gave a reason why they were banned (although it was probably because of the fact that they got into fights while performing on stage). - Gg2000

The Contenders

11 Cannibal Corpse's albums were banned from stores & songs were banned from being performed in Germany

They were also stopped from performing after religious protests.

12 Limp Bizkit was banned from Ukraine (In 2015). The band stemmed from Fred Durst's interest in moving to Crimea which was annexed by Russia in 2014

Ban them from the world. - XxembermasterxX

Fred Durst sucks. - Userguy44

You sure Fred Durst wasn't banned for just being Fred Durst?

13 The Clash was banned from East Germany because they thought their music was too politically charged.

What's wrong with being too politically? - Userguy44

Think about it from their perspective: if The Clash have different political ideas than what you're trying to promote to your people, that could motivate them to rebel against you. And The Clash did contrast with the ideals of the East German government. If you want to keep the public on your side, don't even let dissent be a possibility. - Gg2000

14 The Bloodhound Gang was banned from Russia in 2013 because their bassist shoved a Russian flag down his pants at a Ukraine gig
15 Cradle of Filth Banned in China, Their Music Branded 'Unsuitable to Play in Mainland China'
16 Dire Straits' Money for Nothing was banned in Canada for being homophobic, especially the word "f***ot"

Then censor it. - Userguy44

It was banned in 2011 because "like other racially driven words in the English language, ' f***** ' is one that, even if entirely or marginally acceptable in earlier days, is no longer so." - Metal_Treasure
