Russia included Last.fm in the list of banned sites
The reason is "Kill the Cop" of song "Psychea" band, which was declared extremist
Roskomnadzor (Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications) included Last.fm music portal to the register of banned sites because of the song of "Psychea" band, TASS.
“Music portal Last.fm is included in the list of banned sites based on the decision of the district court, which had recognized the song of the "Psychea" band, posted on the website, as extremist material that is prohibited in Russian Federation,” states the spokesperson of Roskonnadzor.
“On the basis of the anti-extremist legislation the site has to be blocked, but still it [Last.fm] has some time to remove the prohibited information; then Roskomnadzor will remove the portal from the register of banned sites,” he added.
"Psychea" is a Russian alternative rock band, playing music in the self- named genre of "surrealcore". "Kill the Cop" song was declared extremist by Moscow's Dorogomilovsky District Court in September 2010 and included on the Federal List of Extremist Materials.
Recently, simmilar situation happened to "Krovostok" band. All the songs of "Krovostok" are banned in Russia because of their rough obscene lyrics. Actually, “Krovostok” is more like a good gangsta rap parody, which is basically making fun of all those "true gangsta rappers".
