[VIDEO] Ban everything, y’all! Bluegrass song parodies government overreach

Government intrusion via a nanny state mentality has reached the point of ridiculousness. In fact, it’s almost comical and one group of musicians has decided to made a joke of it all, suggesting that the government should simply ban everything that might potentially cause harm to Americans.

Bluegrass group The Ballard Brothers just released their debut single, “Ban This Song.” This song satirizes the extreme lengths the Obama administration is willing to go to in order to take away our Second Amendment rights.

The redneck number includes references to deaths by toasters, falling off ladders, lighting matches, car accidents and even boredom from watching “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

The United States is becoming a country “We no longer recognize because society is trying to control everything for the sake of protection,” Michael Branch, a founder of The Ballard Brothers, told The Blaze.

Branch met fellow founders Brett Roberts and John Roberts in New York City four years ago at Glenn Beck’s “Arguing with Idiots Video Contest,” where they were participants. They didn’t know one another when they arrived, but they have since formed The Ballard Brothers, “an alter ego parody band.”

“It seems to me the facts demand that we change some things in our great land to keep our people safe from death or harm,” the song begins. “There are good folks dying every day in senseless in peculiar ways, so I’ll make my point with good, old southern charm.”

Branch noted that The Ballard Brothers will not only focus on political satire, but they plan to branch out into “family-oriented material” and mock popular songs, too, mostly sticking to their “Bluegrass style.”
