    Mexican officials target drug ballads

    Mexico's Sinaloa state has named a new target in the government's war on organized crime: bars, restaurants and night clubs that play songs glorifying drug trafficking.
    Those that do will have their licenses revoked, according to new rules published in the state's official register.
    "They can play other types of songs, but nothing that incites violence or justifies crimes," Sinaloa Gov. Mario Lopez Valdez said as he announced the measure this week.
    The popular ballads, known as narcocorridos, tell of shootings, police chases and armored cars.

    Let's see. If the ballads had included xxx sex references it would have been called rap.
