In the wake of the tragic shooting of nine blacks by a white gunman in a Charleston, South Carolina, church in June, the folks in South Carolina have removed the Confederate flag from Statehouse grounds. The guys in the local metal act Mushroomed apparently don't think the flag is offensive. The website Blabbermouth reports that the group is sticking by the decision to use it on its merch.

In a post on their Facebook page, Mushroomhead defends its position with the following statement:

"A rebel is a person who stands up for their own personal opinions despite what anyone else says. A true rebel stands up for what they believe is right, not against what's right. It's not about smoking crack, drinking till you're rendered unconscious, or beating the crap out of anyone that crosses your path. It's all about being an individual and refusing to follow a crowd that forces you to think the same way they do even if it means becoming an outcast to society. True rebels know who they are and do not compromise their individuality or personal opinion for anyone. They're straightforward and honest and they will sure as hell tell it like it is."
