Shut Up and Sing + Nirvana Gone Wrong

Kurt Cobain is rolling over in his grave right about now. Forbes.com is reporting that CSI: Miami has been granted the rights to use four Nirvana songs in an upcoming episode. This depresses me to no end. I don’t know what’s more surprising, that Nirvana is going to be played on such a horrible show or that Nirvana is being mentioned in Forbes.

Even more depressing than Nirvana on CBS is that NBC and The CW have both denied The Weinstein Company ad space to promote Shut Up and Sing. Apparently neither corporation feels it’s appropriate to get money from a studio making a movie that doesn’t sugar coat and praise everything Bush does. Welcome to the land of the free and the home of the brave. It’s scary that Freedom of Speech is becoming an ironic term.

If you haven’t seen Shut Up and Sing I suggest you go check it out. It follows the Dixie Chicks from 2003 to present to show how lead singer Natalie Maines’ comment about Bush effected not only the bands popularity but their relationship with one another. The Dixie Chicks come out of the movie looking like they were the only level heads in a sea full of insanity. Sure Maines can sometimes be very loose lipped(She’s hysterical at moments. Made me love her even more.) but her belief in herself and her refusal that she did anything wrong was so inspirational it made me want to go out and buy tickets to one of their shows.

The damage may be done for the Chicks and their relationship with country music but I don’t really think that’s a bad thing. I think this movie showcases that the past few years of their lives have allowed them to evolve and become the musicians they were meant to be.

The saddest part of the movie was not the utter ignorance displayed by those who boycotted the Chicks music but it was from the Red Cross who refused to accept a million dollar donation from the group. Good to know helping others comes before political gain for a non profit.

Shut Up and Sing is a must see for anyone who believes in the ideals of freedom of speech, even in a society where keeping your mouth shut seems more like the status quo. As a fan of the Dixie Chicks since I saw them at Lilith Fair in Toronto nearly a decade ago I can only hope they’ll continue to do what they do best, entertain.
