The centre of Birmingham, which is in a city in the British Midlands just outside Dudley, was the scene of rioting and pillaging following an appearance by popular girl group "Girls Aloud" who specialise in singing to death 30 year-old songs by people such as Eric Clapton, Tom Paxton, Paul McCartney, The Everley Brothers and The Wombles.
Headlining a concert for the hard of culture at the city's extremely over-priced National Exhibition Centre, during the chorus of their top ten hit song "I'll have the Fish and Chips but hold the Mushy Peas, oh, and give us a Newcastle Brown while you're there will you", the five girls - Cherry Cola, Kimberley Biscuits, Nadine Palindromatic Enidan, Nicky Wicky and Sara Hardly - were heard to sing together in tune.
A member of the audience, who had been specially let out for the evening to attend the concert, was heard to scream "In tune, in tune!", resulting in a riot, the likes of which has not been seen since the last time a riot of such proportions had been seen.
The judges panel from X-Factory, the television ego of a man called Simon Cowbell, were 200% sure that the tune had been nailed, hence the reason it appeared to be in tune.
Leeds group the Kaiser Chiefs, who attended as special guests of the management, were said to have predicted the riot.
