The Decemberists are an immoral, liberal, Indie-rock band from Portland, Oregon. Their members include Colin Meloy, Chris Funk, Jenny Conlee, Nate Query, and John Moen. They played a concert for Barack Obama, and endorsed him for the presidency. 
They are known for glorifying rape, suicide (most often by drowning, and some songs simply involve death by drowning, without suicide being involved), and various other sinful acts in their music; the songs “We Both Go Down Together” (rape and double-suicide), “The Landlord’s Daughter/You’ll Not Feel the Drowning” (rape and apparent homicide by drowning, in the respective parts of the song), and the entire story arc of the latest album, “The Hazards of Love,” is based around rape, intercourse, homicide, infanticide (although at least the character who so gleefully sings of his childrens’ murders is the villain, although lead singer Meloy takes undue joy in the song) and the eventual double-suicide of the main characters by drowning. Apparently they also suffer from a severe lack of originality, as well as a severe lack of morals.
When asked whether he felt his music could corrupt those who listened to by glorifying rape, homicide and suicide, leader singer Colin Meloy said that he “didn’t care”.
Conservapedia, literally the only thing in the world that can make the Decemberists seem awesome
