Traumatic Anal Devastation Interrupts Newt Gingrich Rally

A rally for Republican Party nominee Newt Gingrich in Las Vegas on Thursday morning was interrupted by local Nevada grindcore band Traumatic Anal Devastation. Apparently the band members showed up outside the rally, plugged their instruments in, and generated what Gingrich staffer Terry ‘The Stick’ Foley called “the sound of a tank driving through a minefield.”

Police showed up and pulled the plug on the band after about five minutes (twenty songs). Singer for the group Chip “Gravelthroat” Corbin said the impromptu performance was a political statement based on the band’s agenda for equal rights, animal rights, and support of anti-war movements across the world. When asked how his band’s name reflected its political beliefs, Corbin stated “Traumatic Anal Devastation is obviously metaphorical for the way the government and capitalism has continually raped the public at-large.”

When asked how people were supposed to understand the political nature of the lyrics given the undecipherable delivery of them, Corbin responded “Huh? What do you mean?” No reports of hearing loss or more than usual psychological damage from the Gingrich supporters who were present.

"the sound of a tank driving through a minefield.” The sound all true grind bands aspire to.

This screams "shenanigans" to me but I enjoy the fact that it was directed at Newt. He is the most loathsome of the sidesplittingly hopeless cast of corporation coddling, christian religion pandering, southern strategy-plotting nominees.

This would have been made even better at a Santorum rally, given the uptight, social conservative nature of the candidate, the 'meaning' of his last name and the name of the band in question.
