I’m The Lead Singer Here

China's ministry of culture is drafting new rules to make karaoke parlors responsible for seeking out and deleting songs banned by the ruling Chinese Communist Party, ensuring that only "healthy" songs that "promote positive energy" will be sung across the country. Venues will be required to delete banned karaoke tracks from a centrally controlled blacklist to be reviewed by an expert karaoke music review board. Songs will be banned and deleted if deemed to "endanger national unity, sovereignty or territorial integrity," "harm national security, honor or interests," or "incite ethnic hatred.”
