Traffic Jam Band Would 'Probably Do It Again'

I guess being arrested and told your music is terrible by most of Los Angeles isn't enough of a deterrent these days. Imperial Suck Stars, the OC hip-hop morons who pulled sideways across the 101 freeway blocking traffic on Tuesday were released from jail and told reporters, "We would probably do it again," according to Curbed LA. The band awaits a court date and the investigation is widening to possibly include those in cahoots for helping to cause the 1 hour and 40 minute traffic shut down. Here's a link to the extraordinarily lame video for "Traffic Jam 101," which they shot prior to this publicity stunt. I'm still not sure what any of it has to do with homeless children.
