The latest in the global trend of countries banning music from their borders.
The French government announced Thursday that it would ban all music, regardless of genre, from their homes by mid-December.
That includes songs that are popular in the U.S. and the U-K., as well as songs from the Uganda and Pakistan.
The move follows a yearlong ban on popular British music, which has also drawn the ire of European leaders.
“The decision is in accordance with the law, which prohibits the use of music that is not authorized,” Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux said.
The ban will take effect on December 31.
Le RouX said the ban would be “effective immediately.”
The move comes as France grapples with rising hate crimes and police killings.
Last year, France experienced the highest number of recorded hate crimes in Europe, according to data compiled by the European Parliament.
The country is also grappling with a deadly wave of suicides and gun violence.
