    Here are the Megadeth "Holy Wars... The Punishment Due" lyrics. What was the outcome, Maiden England ? Are Megadeth banned as well ?

    Brother will kill brother
    Spilling blood across the land
    Killing for religion
    Something I don't understand

    Fools like me, who cross the sea
    And come to foreign lands
    Ask the sheep, for their beliefs
    Do you kill on God's command?

    A country that's divided
    Surely will not stand
    My past erased, no more disgrace
    No foolish naive stand

    The end is near, it's crystal clear
    Part of the master plan
    Don't look now to Israel
    It might be your homelands


    Holy wars

    Upon my podium, as the
    Know it all scholar
    Down in my seat of judgement
    Gavel's bang, uphold the law
    Up on my soapbox, a leader
    Out to change the world
    Down in my pulpit as the holier
    Than-thou-could-be-messenger of God

    Wage the war on organized crime
    Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks
    Behind the lines
    Some people risk to employ me
    Some people live to destroy me
    Either way they die.

    They killed my wife and my baby,
    With hopes to enslave me
    First mistake... last mistake
    Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants
    Next mistake... no more mistakes!

    Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite
    Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't
    Thinkin' it.
    Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
    I know what I said, now I must scream of the overdose
    And the lack of mercy killings.

    Cheers,
    Goss

    I'm sorry as well,not fair at all.But for the future,I wonder if it would be in Saxon's best interest to attempt to play there at all.Lets face it,it takes one nut to take things to the extreme.It would take one person to make a point (violently) based on these false allegations.Saxon may be a marked band.These allegations are taken very seriously and never forgiven because a religion has been offended.Once brainwashed all is lost.I've seen Nugent a few times and they always have added security,padding down for weapons,he is a marked man in the eyes of animal activists.I'm sorry the fans are not getting to see Saxon,they are truely the best live band ever.

    You really have got a point there... I really do not want to miss a new studio album from Saxon because of that ...:rolleyes: and the DVD and live album... No, let them tour in the USA! The USA has the moral task to support Saxon now, just because of this all... When the USA now doesn't give visa, I don't understand foreign policy of USA anymore at all..:)

    Looking forward to the new Saxon Album - "Buddha is a Fat Bastard", apparently some Danish cartoonists are working on the cover art as we speak.

    I remember when Nuclear Assault played in Belfast, and were very jittery as to playing their superb number "Hang the Pope". Having avoided it all night, the cries were such from the crowd that they were forced to play it. Three times. And a jolly time was had by all denominations.
