I have never been a big fan of cursing. Actually, I think stupid people who can't find better words to express themselves use curses. So I have decide to edit, all of the music I listen to... MY question is: Are there programs you can use to edit out expletives?

What music is this specifically? I am interested.

Is it naughty nu-wappers?

just live with it. there are better ways to express oneself, but these people chose to use those words for a reason. they use those words because of the reaction people like you have. once swearing and expletives become normal, they wont have any meaning, and will fall out of use.

I think in the case of bands like Strapping Young Lad, cursing can be pretty humorous. In a band that takes itself seriously, though, like Slipknot, cursing is stupid. It's too hard to take anyone seriously when he's being as serious as can be and every other word out of his mouth is an f-bomb.

Just everything, I listen to a lot of stuff. This is inspired by me listening to Laid to Rest by Lamb of God, I love the song, but him saying the F word ruins it for me. I just honestly, could do without it, thats all.

chill man, its the way the artist intended it. i mean there are bands that take the cursing way too far (limp bizkit for example.... and its a shame, the music alone is not bad,) but most of the times when an artist curses, it fits, and its just a word, its not really a big deal. the only reason you have a problem with it is because you've been told since you were little that its a "bad word". if i told you were told that whopper was a bad word growing up, you'd probably bug out in a burger king one day.

the only thing worse than swearing in a song is having the swearing edited out. it's like getting neutered, it's really obvious what you were trying to remove was.

There is a difference between using a word because it's how you feel and it's what fits, and using the word because it is a curse. I think most of the time curses are used because they fit, it's what the writer felt. It belongs there and I think you should respect the vision they had for the song.

Could you possibly be more up your own arse? You sound like you're 9 years old.

It's all a matter of context, as with the use of any form of language. Sometimes it really is the best choice to express something, sometimes lyricists put it in there because they suck at what they do. The only thing that separates swear words from any other words is social convention.

Just put up with them. If you don't like it, get fucked.

You'll still be able to tell what was said, unless you plan on singing over it.

I think that's way too much work for a really dumb cause, seriously they're just words.

But if you wanna torture yourself with the work, you can download Audacity, its free.

You can edit music files in Audacity, but you'd really need the vocal track to edit out the words while leaving the music behind them intact.

Ahh, 16 posts before the first "helpful" answer. This is why i love the Pit.

haha, don't worry I expected the trivial answers, thanks for your suggestion Gunpowder. Its not that I can't handle a four letter word, I just prefer not to listen to them. Plus maybe I'm trying to set a good example and encourage people to use better words then four letter words. Since when is that a bad thing. Granted, the context of a word is important, but if I choose not to put that into my ears and my brain the least some of you could have is a bit of understanding, why not?

But what the hell makes saying "**** you" and "Screw you" any different when the sentiment is the same? Why is it any different to say dick or penis? It's still just a body part. The point is, you're not doing a good thing, you're doing an unnecessary, misguided thing.

Ah, so you've got so desperate that you've resorted to random insults which don't even have any basis in reality? Thanks, I needed a laugh.

Well, looking at it logically, telling someone their hair looks fucking stupid and telling someone that they have a ridiculously terrible haircut is essentially going to deliver the same message. One is mildly more blunt, but both will damage their pride and self-confidence.

The only reason that it's considered vulgar is because society has decided it's vulgar. If society decided your face was vulgar (which it probably is, to stoop to your level ), would it be fair to make you wear a bag over your head? The general consensus is not necessarily correct. The Nazis were democratically elected, that doesn't mean society was right to appoint Hitler as their leader.

I don't like curse words, so I choose not to use them or listen to them under my free will. You do, yay! Congrats!

Actually, I managed to incorporate it into my argument.

I'm going to bed. I doubt you'll actually be able to refute my points, as they're bulletproof and watertight.

Another analogy for explanation:
I could start a new language where hello and **** are swapped around. Would you refuse to say hello, because it's swearing, albeit in a different language? Would you refuse to greet people conventionally because it's swearing in English?

I'm not, I just think that you're being needlessly uptight about the matter, and I'm trying to make the point that whilst it's not necessary to swear constantly or anything, it's as much language as anything else, just a sound we make or shapes we create on a surface. There shouldn't be a stigma around any words, just the way they're used.

How about you try that for a day. Announce first go to your principle and say that word instead of Hello. Or to your mother. But its okay, because your breaking boundaries. Go for it, you know what, you're the next Martin Luther King. Break-Me-In holds rally today to protect the decency of the act of Fornicating Under The Consent Of The King. This man can't be stopped, Oh whats that mother got you by the ear and is beating you with a belt? Don;t worry, he'll get a tribal arm tattoo and an earring in his left ear and for a couple of years he'll hang out with the wrong crowd, because thats what rebels do! You have transformed my beliefs, how can I join your glorious following. Please, messiah of the curse, help me to become so cool and hardcore.

Flame you? I want to be you! Such a cool guy with such originality, despite the fact that modern society doesn't approve of the big bad words you use. Such an open minded person like you could understand how using such words can make you sound like you have the education of a high school dropout.

Thats my point, I don;t cringe every time I hear a curse I just don't use them nor do I prefer it in my music. Is it the end of the world if there is a swear word. NO, but if I can take them out and enjoy teh musicianship of such bands then I shouldn't be attacked for that.
