this is crazy:

A phone salesman was hauled off a London-bound plane by police after his taste in music aroused terrorism fears.

Harraj Mann, 23, asked a taxi driver to play The Clash's London Calling through the vehicle's stereo.

But the cabbie rang police after he heard the song which includes the line: "War is declared and battle come down". Police said Mr Mann, from Hartlepool, was released without charge after his arrest on board a Bmi plane at Durham Tees Valley Airport.

i guess this is to be expected, but still pathetic and ridiculous. via the sound scavengers list.
