Rome: In ancient Rome, it was illegal to sing publicly about government. Violating the law was punishable by death. A little harsh, don’t you think?
New Hampshire: It is illegal to tap your feet or nod your head to the music in a tavern, restaurant, or cafe.
India: The music video for Paris Hilton’s song, “Stars Are Blind,” is banned in India. India is on to something…
Kansas: In Russel, Kansas, it is illegal to have a musical car horn. I have never been to fond of those horns anyways.
Montana: In Helena, Montana, it is illegal for a woman to dance on a table in a saloon or a bar unless she has on clothing that weighs 3 pounds and 2 ounces. They must be trying to completely discourage dancing on tables in Helena, Montana. Who would want to dance with 3 pounds of clothing on their body? Sounds terrible!
England: British leader, Oliver Cromwell, outlawed Christmas Carols in England from 1647-1660.
Finland: Taxi drivers in Finland must pay a copyright fee for the music they play in their car while a customer is in the backseat.
Vietnam: In 2009, Vietnam banned dancing at karaoke bars.
