Write A Song, Go To Jail

(punkbands) A band called Deli from Turkey (not to be confused with a turkey sandwich bought from a deli), is facing 18 months in jail for a song they wrote lashing out against a state exam high school students must take to gain entry into college.

They're being charged with insulting their homeland and will be in court Thursday to defend themselves.

The song is called "OSYM" and contains the lyrics "Life should not be a prison because of an exam/I have gotten lost/You have ruined my future/ I am going to tell you one thing:/ Shove that exam...'' - no child left behind
