August 6, 1989

Aug6On this day in 1989, Detroit police stop the performance at an N.W.A show because their latest hit, ‘Fuck Tha Police’ had been causing an uproar.

Before they could perform the song, the group was removed from the stage and escorted back to their hotel.

No charges were filed, and officers told the rappers that they just “wanted to show the kids that you can’t say ‘Fuck the police’ in Detroit.”
