Skip to comments.Indie rockers force Hannity to change number

A few weeks ago, we introduced you to Brooklyn indie agit-popsters Kids Against Combs, whod just finished an album that used the private phone number of Fox News loudmouth Sean Hannity as its title. (See "Combs Nail Hannity," This Just In, July 15.)
Sean Hannity (631) 673-8003 was set to be released on July 21 by 10-34 Records. But, according to a press release sent out last week by the band, Kids Against Combs and 10-34 were issued papers on July 15 from Hannitys attorneys, "threatening to sue both parties if they proceeded with releasing an album named after Hannitys home phone number and containing the political pundits home address in the CDs liner notes." (The digits, meanwhile, are now disconnected; "changed to an unlisted number," says the recording.)
The band also alleges that spies from the Hannity camp or at least some people who "looked extremely conservative Republican" and "not the type of folk that would be at any sort of live performance, except for maybe Paul Anka or Wayne Newton" arrived to scope out a KAC performance the next day. Luckily, the band had freshly printed copies of the album for sale, sans home address and retitled The Album Formerly Known As Sean Hannitys Phone Number ... Currently Sean Hannity Is a Democracy Subverting Douche Bag.
Despite the fact that 66 percent of our Style and Usage Panel prefer that "douchebag" be written as a compound word, theyre in unanimous agreement that the new title works just as well.
"The Boston Phoenix" is published and written by a bunch of whiny, pencil-necked socialist geeks. The paper is also lumpy with pornographic classified ads. Gee, what a surprise, ay? And I'm no big fan of Hannity's.
You know that Hannity must be really effective or else they wouldn't be so wound up about him.
There's nothing quite like expressing one's hatred through "art".
These people wrote a big hit piece on Mark Steyn.
I don't like Hannity either.
"And now, to Aruba, for the lastest on the Natalee Holloway case!" PUKE!
Yeah, effective at touting steel buildings and lobstergrams. ;)
Golly, if "Kids against Combs" had it in for Sean "P-Diddy" Combs, I would be happy to buy their album.
So when does the FBI get to start saying "spies from the Al Queada camp or at least some people who "looked extremist Muslim"
Or how about "Criminal looking types or at least some people who "looked like they might be criminals"
Or "illegal immigrants or at least some people who "looked like illegals"
Haven't seen that particular rag, but it sounds like it's another one of those "independent" papers that seems miraculously to have exactly the same style, format, cartoons, classified ad layouts, and editorial position as all of the other "independent" papers I've seen.
I can stomach Hannity for about two or three minutes max, or the average amount of time between the Ruth's Criss commercial and the latest plug for Hannity's latest book, concert, show, whatever. But I have to agree that publishing his phone number and address is way over the line. Regardless of what you think of him, he has a wife and kids and they don't deserve the hate that would be directed at Hannity at home.
Stopped reading after that.
If only Ted Kennedy would take these a-holes on a car ride over a bridge!
I was wondering why they were harassing Hannity if the were against Colmes.
The Boston Pheonix is published by the husband of former Judge Maria Lopez who initiated a whisper campaign against a 12 year old boy who was assaulted at screwdriver point by a guy in a dress called Ebony Horton.
I wouldn't give these spoiled little pu$$86ies a dime no matter what they said. Their 15 minutes is about up. I'm not even going to mention their stupid name.
Kudos for Hannity.
Maria Lopez. Yup. Geez, I didn't know she was married to the pub. I recall reading about that sentencing story. Big noise on that one.
Thanks for the note.
Amen to that.
Remember the crucifix standing in a pool of urine being called "art"? Talk about Christ-hating. Says it all.
Yup. A few years ago, there was also a dust-up when their teen-aged son threw a John Hughes-esque teen movie house party at their oh-so-swanky house in the western burbs when mumsie and daddie were away. I guess the party got severely out of hand and required the attention of the local constabulary.
Well, I might have attended a few of those types of events over the years when I was a teenager....
You started a band?? PING!!
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
You were trying for a long time to incorporate super and tramp in a thread here, weren't you?
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
boy these kids think they're so smart but if the libs were smart how come they keep losing elections? That "big dummy" W managed to beat The Inventor of the Internet and Mr. Vietnam
War Hero. They're just whiny spoiled brats and maybe some of them will wise up in a few years (prob not, though). "Not a liberal at 20, you have no heart; not a conservative at 40,
you have no mind". Actually, not a conservative at _20_, you have no mind for that matter :)
Remember the song "Don't Call Us, We'll Call You" by Sugarloaf? It included the "beeps" for the number of one of the record labels that turned them down (CBS, I think). Maybe CBS had to change their number, too.
I'd suggest that Sean "accidentally" mention the phone numbers of the band members myself.(I'm also fairly certain that would also lead to Fox News getting sued, with the argument "Well, it's okay for *us* to do it, but not him" being used. I'm also certain the lawsuit would result in more money for the band than their actual musical talent would ever produce.)
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my FoxFan list. *Warning: This can be a high-volume ping list at times.
Whoever these kids are, they will never attain anything near Hannity's popularity and name recognition, even in their little wet dreams.
The word pathetic comes to mind!
Thanks for the ping!
I dont watch hannity on TV, but I listen to his radio show. Sometimes it is boring and he's so damn repetitive...he uses the same talking points.
Today I was impressed by his coverage of Able Danger. Not even Rush talked about it! Shame on you rush!!
These idiots were clearly raised by zoo animals.
