No Age - "Eraser" (live on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson)

These are tense political times we live in. While taping their appearance on CBS's Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, No Age guitarist Randy Randall was told he could not wear his Barack Obama t-shirt. "I have recently come under what can only be called extreme censorship," Randall wrote afterwards, the reason being that it would apparently violate the Equal Time Rule entitled to both candidates. "I felt it was important to voice my choice for presidential candidate, Barack Obama, seeing as the episode would air eight days before election day," he says. Instead, Randall obscured Obama's face and wrote "Free Health Care" on his shirt. "Dean and I decided that it would be better to take advantage of the stage we had at our disposal." When the clip aired last week, Ferguson candidly acknowledged the situation.
