Young Iranians Want to Rock

Oh well, you can still rock in America:
Authorities in Iran have arrested over 200 young people for attending a "satanic" rock concert. Iranian officials said that those who had gathered were breaking Islamic law and were guilty of "immoral behavior" for holding a party without government permission.
Just their luck, someone was keeping an eye out for them:
Ali Farhadi, a public prosecutor in Karaj, told state television: "Most of them were wealthy young people who were not aware of the satanic nature of the concert."
Oh, but I am sure those youngsters are getting a sense of the dictatorial nature of their government. Sources: Fox News, Reuters
