ban nhạc viet cong đổi tên

 The Viet Cong, Canadain music band








... we have decided we will be changing the name of our band.
... chúng tôi đã quyết định sẽ thay đổi tên ban nhạc. 

 We are a band who want to make music and play our music for our fans. We are not here to cause pain or remind people of atrocities of the past.
Chúng tôi là ban nhạc chơi nhạc cho người yêu nhạc thưởng thức. Chúng tôi không đến đây để gây ra đớn đau hay nhắc nhở mọi ngượi lại sự tàn bạo trong quá khứ 

Over this time we've been listening, talking and having lots of valuable conversations with the members of the Vietnamese community about the name. Through this dialogue and hearing about what the name means to so many people, we have decided we will be changing the name of our band.

Art and music are about creative expression. However, our band name is not our cause, and we are not going to fight for it. This is not what our band is about.

There are many individuals more eloquent than us who have recently had a lot to say about the topic of the name and our appropriation of the name Viet Cong. For more insights into the arguments we encourage you to read some of these. We are a band who want to make music and play our music for our fans. We are not here to cause pain or remind people of atrocities of the past.
