Duran Duran have dropped Iraq war song CRIMINALS IN THE CAPITAL from their new album - because the track was too "angry". The Rio hitmakers were planning to include the song on their forthcoming Red Carpet Massacre disc, but have decided against it in favour of more upbeat tunes. Keyboardist Nick Rhodes says, "We've always reflected what's around us but we always tried to pick the more uplifting subjects. There was so much doom and gloom around that this record was becoming angry and political."
