This really ticks me off.

Why is it that after some sort of disaster, i.e. 9/11, media that was around before it has to change itself because it may resemble or remind people of the event?

In that Pokemon thread about the non-Pokemon dog, someone said that there was an episode that was taken out of syndication after 9/11 happened. I think that's just plain dumb. Off the top of my head, another example is that Blink-182 changed their concept for the music video for "Stay Together for the Kids," because it was going to take place in a house that was slowly falling apart. But no, too 9/11-y. And Bush had to change the name of their song, "Speed Kills," to "The People That We Love" (or something to that extent; I still have it named as "Speed Kills"). It just doesn't really seem fair. It was all around before 9/11. I can understand if someone were to put out some form of media post 9/11 that might be... I dunno, "crossing the line," but I still think even that's ridiculous.

Maybe it's because I'm not emotionally sensitive or something, but what good are they REALLY doing? It won't change anything. Maybe you guys can try to enlighten me.

I agree. I find it ironic how they say "Never forget", but anything that barely resembles any kind of 9/11 happening, you have to change it it because it would remind people.

Yeah but that makes sense. They wanted their skyline to stay realistic.

I totally forgot about that. That is grotesquely hypocritical.

it wasnt for realism...there was a whole big action scene where spidey saves a falling helicopter by spinning webs between the twin towers...would've made for a great scene

Yeah, but he just means that... it's not possible if the towers aren't there.

That's not quite what I mean, though. If it's for realism, i.e. omitting the towers because they're GONE, that's fine. That's not trying to hide the fact that 9/11 happened.

Yeah.

You know, really, if the government wanted to hide 9/11, the towers would still be there any time NYC is shown in any sort of media. I mean, that would be totally ignoring it, wouldn't it?

I've heard they don't air the Simpsons episode where Homer goes to the Twin Towers, not sure if it's true though.

The video for "Wish You Were Here" by Incubus wasn't aired after 9/11 because they jumped off a bridge in it.

Yeah. Stupid. I'd like to know their reasons for doing it.

Besides, some of those songs are just... I suppose I can see how they weaseled them on there ("Knockin' on Heaven's Door"), but seriously? "Brain Stew?"

^ That list is ridiculous.

Burnin' For You?
Smokin'?
SPIRIT IN THE SKY?!?

That's just stupid.

Wow.

They changed the name of the Busted song Crash and Burn because of 11/9 as well. As a 9 year old, I was devastated.

I was 8.

All I knew was that some big towers fell, and that people died.

I felt okay. I still feel okay. Now I feel sympathy and a bit sad about it, but at least I accept it.

Stupid media. =/

That list that censored music because of the event really gets to me. What do they have to do with 9/11?

You're telling me. Foo Fighters - "Learn to Fly?"

Okay, it references flying.

The music video is in an airplane which starts to go down, BUT THEY SAVE IT.

They just wanted to milk it and look like the good guys.

"all songs by Rage Against the Machine"

Seriously?

That's what I thought. I can see where they might be coming from with a couple of them, but certainly not all. (Not that I agree with any of it.)

lol, nothing to do with the fact that anyone's trying to hide 9/11 or something, but by the time machine head published their video for crashing around you, ahrue luster (guitarist) saw it as a final reason to quit the band, because the clip contained burning buildings and stuff like that, and he was afraid it would be too extreme for that time, but off course, like you would expect from them, rob flynn and the others didn't want to exit the idea of publishing the video
