Filter drummer Jeff Fabb was barred from a restaurant on Wednesday night (09Oct13) because of his neck tattoo.
The rockers headed to meet fans at Brothers Bar & Grill in Denver, Colorado after their show in the city but Fabb was refused entry because of his visible inkings.
The band has now posted a video on YouTube.com showing them being turned away from the eaterie, and Fabb tells the Hollywood Reporter, "I had eaten in the restaurant twice, and after the show we walked back there. The door guy was about to let Amir, our merch (merchandise) guy in, but he wouldn't let me in. I went to speak with the manager and he was confrontational from the moment he saw me. He really didn't care that we'd been there earlier. I was kind of hurt, since most of the people who were in there at the time were from our show and we wanted to join them."

Heavy rockers P.O.D. and Filter have scrapped a joint U.K. tour scheduled for next February (09) - because the ALIVE stars are going on a hiatus.
The San Diego, California-based band announced the cancellation of the tour in a statement this week (ends07Nov08), although they failed to give a reason for pulling the tour. However, rumours are abound online claiming the four-piece is taking a break from the music industry.
Filter are looking to reschedule the concerts and have told their British fans to return to their point of purchase to obtain refunds.
Heavy rockers Filter enjoyed a special reunion with former bassist FRANK CAVANAGH on Monday (10Mar08) while performing for U.S. troops stationed in Kuwait.
Cavanagh quit the band to become a soldier and when he discovered his former bandmates would be playing for his fellow troops in the Middle East, he asked for special permission to join them onstage.
Cavanagh played Hey Man, Nice Shot with his former group, calling the show "a huge honour".
He says, "I love the Army and I love Filter. To be able to join my former band for the first time in nearly six years is a huge honour."
Filter were performing for troops as part of the Operation MySpace tour, which also features the Pussycat Dolls and Jessica Simpson.
The band has a special reason for visiting troops overseas - the tour and their new single Soldiers Of Misfortune are tributes to a fan who joined the Army reserves only to be killed in a rocket attack just days after landing in Iraq on his first assignment.
ARMY OF ANYONE star DEAN DeLEO had reservations about teaming up with former Filter star Richard Patrick because the singer was a drunk who missed shows.
The ex-Stone Temple Pilots guitarist feared Patrick wasn't as clean as he claimed he was when he joined the new supergroup, and he was once so hungover he scrapped a Filter live show.
DeLeo recalls he's glad he gave the singer a chance to redeem himself: "I looked at him, and across his right forearm was a tattoo of the date he got sober.
"Also, when you look someone in the eyes, you can see how confident they are and if they're hiding something, and I could tell that Rich was extremely healthy and focused and excited."
Patrick knew it was time to quit drinking when his alcoholism started affecting his performance.
The singer explains, "I couldn't sing. I was 40 pounds overweight. I couldn't breathe. I couldn't get onstage unless I was half s**tfaced.
"Kids went from cheering to taking a second look at me and staring at me with this blank expression like they had just seen a car accident."
