The funniest thing I ever heard was that the FBI were holding a file on Fat Mike from NOFX because they thought he was trying to subvert the government (well, write a song called murder the government and **** like that might happen)

No because that's not punk


The most famous german punk band wrote a song about streetfights, including verses about how to build molotows, that´s against the law and so it was recorded new without some words

Furthermore a whole song was censored for comparing the police with the SS...

Another Song was censored first, but then legalised for the main verse "Germany has to die"

I cannot believe there is nothing similar in america or elsewhere

Typically in the western world, censorship is banning from radio play or sale in places like Wal-Mart and K-Mart. So to be perfectly honest, censorship of punk songs in recorded form isn't too much of an issue. Because it's not like many mainstream stations would play the rawer stuff anyway.

Still, Clear Channel did create a list of some 180 songs that were "unsuitable" for radio play after 9/11/01, and recommend that their stations didn't play them. It wasn't really punk though, more just corporate ridiculousness. Banning "What a Wonderful World," "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," that kind of stuff. They did ban every single RATM song ever though.

^why would they ban Louis Armstrong????


although mikey moore did use tht song in bowling for columbine....
#8
That's basically what I was getting at. It was really reactionary, random banning of songs. Ob-La Di Ob-La Da made it on there too! Anything that seemed to suggest violence or the recounting of violent events, or an upbeat, life-goes-on attitude was recommended to not be played.

So really, Leftover Crack did have a point with that song.

why do I see someone photoshopping Louis Armstrong into punx mode in the near future?...


I am such a hypocrite in such a thread. I moderate a punk forum!

I think Louis would do well with some tri-coloured liberty spikes.

Yeah, it's the terrible truth. At least you aren't a draconian moderator - then there'd be blood in the streets.
no

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

That's ridiculous.

Because, of course, people wouldn't buy excessive amounts of American-made products that became so popular after 9/11 if they had a life-goes-on attitude...

The upbeat life goes on attitude is exactly the kind of attitude people need in a time like that. I'd rather listen to something that gets my spirits up and keeps me productive, then just sitting there and pitying. I don't mean to sound like it wasn't a horrible thing and we all should've took a little time to pay are respects, but life does go on.

Also censorship is complete bull. What ever happened to freedom of speech? Now it's "freedom of speech with in reasonable limits" and it's a breach of our rights.

Nudity is bad because when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit they suddenly became aware of the fact that they were naked, became ashamed and covered themselves with leaves.(I've heard this explanation before, I didn't make it up.) Duh, don't you kids know anything?


I hate it when one or two prudes ruin it for the rest of us.

Link Wray's Rumble was banned from radioplay and stuff like that in the 50's because it's supposed to sound like a streetfight.

Oh, by the way, the song hasn't got any words.

At all.


Ever.

Lust For Life was used in some commercials for a cruise line. It cut directly from the first line into the chorus. Personally, if there had been a mention of liquor, drugs and strip teases in the commercials I would have shown way more interest in the company.

It's not letting me quote, so I'll just say banning Rumble on the radio is just another reason to think it's an awesome song.

They don't actual censor songs in the US, unless it's gonna be on a major label like Virgin or whatever, who suck anyway, or on the radio or another form of mass media (like Guitar Hero). Independent labels/punk bands can pretty much do anything they want.

The first thing that came to my mind was when the Doors didn't censor the line "girl we couldn't get much higher", which was actually a pretty big deal, according to VH1.

One thing that pissed me off was Viacom taking off all their videos on Youtube, like episode of South Park, which I watch, ha. I ****ing hate Viacom, I'm pretty sure they own Clear Channel as well, but not too sure.

I wore it, nobody even saw it though. But my mom got really mad and made me throw it out. Waste of 10 bucks. I did cut out the logo though and made it as a patch on another blank shirt.

I was considering making a thread for this, but I saw this and it'd be good here. I was listening to Social Distortion's live album from the Roxy I think (kill me), and before they play Prison Bound, Mike Ness was talking about how punk is mainstream now.

"Now it was back in a time when society was not quite ready for this type of music, does anyone remember those days? That's when punk rock was dangerous right? You couldn't walk into a mall and get your little p*ssy pierced, and your little Doc Marten boots, and your crazy color for your hair. You walked down the street with blue hair, you was gonna get in a fight with about five angry construction workers. Or the local college football team, rednecks, or cops. Yeah sometimes they kicked our ass but you know what? Sometimes we beat the **** out of them. That's right I was about 4 foot ****in 8 and I hit the biggest mother****er there."


It got me thinking about what everyone thinks about this? Now everything that he mentioned is normal, and no one even looks at a guy with blue hair. You CAn go to a mall and get your p*ssy pierced, and buy Doc Marten boots, amongst other things. Is this a good thing? Or is it bad that society has accepted punk rock?

fat mike is a douche.
he completely rethought the whole style of the NOFX and broke out into some big political "USa-hole"

Punk rock is something very dear to England now. People accept what they think is punk rock, the coloured hair and odd clothes, but the more controversial things like squatting and scrounging off the government that alot of punx do is looked down on still.
