The Used have been banned from performing in Canada for ten years due to Bert McCracken's criminal record.
Quote from Bert"They won’t let me in. They said not for 10 years. It’s weird, they’re like, ’You need to rehabilitate these crimes before you come back to Canada.’ I’m like, ’What does that mean? When I say criminal record, I’m talking teensy, eensy misdemeanors they still have on my record from, like, 2001 and 2003 - trespassing.”

Strung Out guitarist Jake Kiley married his girlfriend Eliza on stage, in the middle of a show, last week. Bad Religion's Greg Hetson acted as officiant, Bad Religion's Brooks Wackerman acted as best man, and The Used's Bert McCracken stood in as the bridesmaid. Congratulations to the couple!

Bert from The Used says that Warner Bros. was to blame for Artwork, and that the band's new album, Vulnerable, is a reaction to that.
From the ArticleIt was definitely a process with the label for that record from day one. Record labels were falling to pieces and they were desperately reaching for anything like trying to tell us to dress us in certain clothes with bullet proof vests and arm bands. They even told me to change the lyrics on the record. So instead of saying “He’s full of shit,” they’d have me say, “He’s full of it.” A lot of the songs that I initially liked turned into “it,” you know? It was complete bullshit in my mind.
