Abstract Indonesia's President Soekarno declared the Beatles' music as 'a form of mental disease' and urged his people to 'wage war against Beatle music'. He also moved to ban rock and roll but it was increasingly popular with Indonesian youth and many Indonesian bands played in the rock and roll style. Soekarno's war on rock and roll and the case of one of the most popular bands Koes Bersaudara (Koes Brothers) is discussed. Music and censorship in post-Soekarno Indonesia is also discussed.
