Country music act Rascall Flatts, comprising of Gary LeVox (lead vocals), Jay DeMarcus (bass guitar, keyboards, background vocals) and Joe Don Rooney (electric guitar, background vocals), was forcibly admitted to a mental health facility in their native state of Ohio early this morning.
The group was rounded up by concerned mental health professionals after hearing the group’s song ‘Rewind’.
‘The lyrics to the song show classic symptoms of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and mental disorders similar to it.’ said Dr. Harold Washington, director of mental health at the Ohio Correctional Facility. ‘Once we heard the lyrics we knew we had to get these men the help they needed, whether they wanted it or not.’
The song and lyrics in question recall a night with a woman that the band wish they could relive every single minute of.
‘Literally every line of the song is about wanting to recreate every moment from the night in question.’ Dr. Washington continued, ‘It shows an unhealthy obsession with repetition. What’s the famous saying? ‘Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again…’ something like that. There is something definitely wrong with those poor fellows. Something sick and demented was written right into that song. We had goons round them up immediately.’
Dr. Washington and his supporting staff conferred that help was needed, talked with the band’s management and sent what they called ‘handlers’ to pick up the band from their rehearsal space. They band did not want to go, claiming that there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of them.
‘You’ve got this all wrong!’ vocalist Gary screamed while trying to deny his own admittance, ‘We’re a country band, we don’t write our own songs!’
