Korn lead BP boycott

Whoever would have bet on Korn coming to the aid of turtles and shrimp fishermen? But they have: they're organising a boycott of BP:

Korn’s Jonathan Davis is urging artists to boycott troubled oil giant BP over the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

In a statement issued Friday, the rock singer says he has gathered a coalition of artists, including Lady Gaga, Creed and the Backstreet Boys, and they have agreed not to use fuel sold by BP or their affiliates on their tours this year.

Let's hope BP don't just sell any surplus oil to one of their competitors and thus manage to make the boycott a little less effective or anything, eh?

But even so: it's nice to see Korn doing something positively for once.

Unfortunately, almost all gas stations sell gas that may have come from BP, or was refined by BP, or distributed by BP. In fact, a BP branded station is just as likely to have gas that didn't come from BP. These bands hurt local station owners much more than BP. Still... I can't stomach pulling into a BP station either.
