Viet Cong Address Name Controversy At Portland Show
Last night Canadian post-punkers Viet Cong played their first concert since the announcement that Oberlin College cancelled a forthcoming show by the band due to its name. The controversy was addressed a few times during the set at Portland’s Mississippi Studios when Viet Cong reiterated previous sentiments that they’re not aiming to offend people, they just wanna make music.

And they've got Wayne's World 2 references: "We should change our name to Old Man Fashioning a Kayak. No one will get offended by that!"
