Aye, no problem ... different senses of humour in different countries, I guess.
Here in the UK, we take our "rock stars" with a pinch of salt, particularly if we've been a fan of a band for a long time (Scorps = 26 years in my case). We'll defend them against outsiders to the hilt, though!
Now that we're grown up, we no longer see them as God-like and untouchable and we're more than willing to poke a little fun at them - especially when they take themselves too seriously (witness the whipping handed out to silly old Judas Priest recently, a band who made their name in the UK through people like me).
After all, guys in a band are just guys in a band ... whose particular talent (and we *all* have a particular talent) lies in entertaining other people with their art. That certainly doesn't turn them into Gods, and neither does it put them above criticism. They've positioned themselves in the public spotlight (basically for financial and egotistical reasons), and that makes them fair game for any light-hearted parody such as mine.
Far be it from me to insult the Scorpions ... they've given me lots of pleasure over the years and I love them for it. Doesn't mean I can't take the ***** every now and then, though.
