When did it become so awkward to paste a URL into WhineJournal? :(

Anyhoo, the URL above should take you to the splendid video for Hypernova's song Fairy Tales. Hypernova are no-shit indie rock band from the Islamic Republic of Iran. Now, rock music is considered by the Iranian government to be un-islamic, and thus is banned. However, acording to a CNN report this week, Tehran has a thriving underground indie scene. Their report featured the up-and-coming Yellow Dogs, but mentioned Hypernova as an Iranian act that had already broken through in the US. So, while I trackdown a Yellow Dogs video, please enjoy Hypernova and give them lots of Youtube hits.
