Date of Action: May 2005
Region: North America
Subject: Political/Economic/Social Opinion
Confronting Bodies: MTV
Description of Artwork: Rock band Nine Inch Nails was set to perform a set at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards, including the song "The Hand that Feeds." The band wanted to use an image of President George W. Bush as a backdrop for their performance.
The Incident: MTV raised concerns with the band members about the political nature of the backdrop.
Results of Incident: Nine Inch Nails opted to withdraw from the performance rather than change the backdrop. Trent Reznor, the band's leading man, said in a statement "Apparently the image of our President is as offensive to MTV as it is to me. See you on tour this fall when we return to play in America."
