We suppose it was only a matter of time before the God-fearing values of Chick-fil-A and the raunchy, less-than-God-fearing music of Milwaukee’s The Frogs came head to head. And like Rocky squaring off against Ivan Drago, that’s exactly what appears to be happening in Nashville, Tennessee. According to the Nashville Scene, a Chick-fil-A billboard was defaced with a banner reading “It’s Only Right And Natural,” the title of The Frogs’ 1989 album. Making things even better (or worse, if you’re Mike Huckabee), the wheatpasting hooligans covered up the company’s name with the banner. Nicely done, Nashville Frogs/gay-rights fans.
Chick-fil-A, of course has been in hot water over its COO’s stance on gay marriage, leading to the creation of “hate-free” chicken sandwiches by some consumers, and signs of solidarity from other, less-cool consumers. The Frogs, meanwhile, were a flamboyant and controversial band that emerged from Milwaukee in the early ’80s. One of the group’s founding members, Dennis Flemion, drowned last month in a Wisconsin lake.
Head over to Nashville Scene to see what could be read as a tribute to Flemion and his band for yourself.
