According to Metal Hammer, the Baldwin Street Grille's list of banned music was mostly a joke to poke fun at metal gatekeeping. Wildhoney said he posted the photo of the list online to get a few laughs, only to see it completely and totally blow up. the list includes overarching bans on bands like Five Finger Death Punch and Type O Negative, to super specific ones like "no Meshuggah, Gojira, Gatecreeper, or any other new commercial death metal band that sells skateboard decks."
