Piece Of CBGB’s Wall To Be Displayed In … Myrtle Beach?

One of the most venerable icons of the punk rock era, the bathroom wall at CBGB, has found a resting place. Inside a Ramones museum? No. Next to Iggy Pop’s bed? Guess again. As part of a traveling Rock ‘n’ Roll amusement park in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina? Why, of course. Via Daily Intel:

Subject: First Rock & Roll Theme Park to Obtain CBGB Wall

Hi,

Hard Rock Park, the world’s first rock ‘n’ roll amusement park, is hitting the road, embarking on a six city tour designed to spread news of Myrtle Beach’s newest attraction…

New York’s Hard Rock Café will be donating one of the most definitive classic pieces’ of New York City: A CBGB’s wall section that was removed from the venue after it closed in 2006.

May wanna be sedated for that one.
