Rockers Coldplay have slammed last month's Grammy Awards as "fascist" and "f***ing outrageous" - for banning them for making any political comments.
The British Yellow stars were warned before America's premiere music awards - broadcast live - if they repeated any of their Anti-War views they would be taken off air.
Drummer Will Champion responds, "I think that's absolutely disgusting. I think it really is foul and totally fascist.
"The award ceremonies are about a celebration of artistic integrity and people playing music, and people with ideas, and people with passion, and if you stop someone from saying what they want to say, then you may as well just steal their art from them. It's f***ing outrageous."
