Australian prime minister doesn’t renew his domain, so a punk band grabbed it.

There’s been quite a bit of political turmoil in Australia this year when Scott Morrison became the country’s unelected prime minister. This, along with federal government policies over things like immigration, same-sex rights, and overall human rights has greatly angered a certain segment of society.

Morrison was apparently too busy to notice that his personal Internet domain, www.scottmorrison.com.au, had expired. Enter Lustra, an American punk band that sided with Morrison’s opponents, which grabbed the domain for $50.

The first thing they did was post a song called “Scotty Don’t Know.”

For some reason, if you click on that, you may find that site blocked. Looks like Scotty might be fighting back.
