(USA TODAY) --Mumford & Sons found out the hard way that there's no special treatment at the Clermont Lounge.

The Atlanta strip club kicked out the folk-rock group for violating its strict no-camera policy Tuesday night, according to TMZ.

What started out as your run-of-the-mill strip club karaoke night turned rowdy when Mumford's Ben Lovett took the stage to perform a few songs. His bandmates reportedly wanted to capture his performance, breaking out their phones.

The club's security and DJ were none too pleased, apparently asking them repeatedly to put the phones away. The ordeal escalated, with more club staff getting involved as the band members cursed them out, TMZ reported.

The band had been out celebrating after a performance at Centennial Olympic Park earlier that evening.

So far, the band has been mum about the incident, and a representative for the group denied a request from USA TODAY for comment.
