    Iraqi Metal Band Acrassicauda Keeps on Rockin' in the Free World

    ELIZABETH, N.J. — The band Acrassicauda is rockin' in the free world, but how they got here is an immigrant song of a different type.

    After avoiding Saddam Hussein's secret police, enduring the bombing of their practice space, dodging death threats and navigating sectarian warfare in their native land, four Iraqi musicians who wanted nothing more than to rock 'n' roll all night are living in New Jersey, pursuing their dreams of heavy metal stardom.

    Tales of bands struggling through hard times and overcoming obstacles to stardom are as old as rock 'n' roll itself. But Acrassicauda, named after a species of black scorpion, has had a harder time than most.,2933,506206,00.html

    It's great to see these boys made it to America to reach their dreams.
