I just found this video of Weird Al on mtvmusic.com:

http://www.mtvmusic.com/video/?id=108884


I think, censoring swear words is already ridiculous, but this??


What does the pit think of this?


P.S: For the ones who don't want to click the video, it's "don't download this song" by Weird Al Yankovic.. Here's the first verse:

"Once in a while maybe you will feel the urge
To break international copyright law
By downloading MP3s from file-sharing sites
Like Morpheus or Grokster or Limewire or KaZaA"


The underlined words are censored..

Uh, no, it's pretty fucking common sense. Let's refer to the lyrics:

"Aiding and abetting." End of discussion. Do you have any idea how hard the RIAA would jump on MTV for that?

Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

Nah, it's pretty damn sad. The people who are gonna illegally download stuff are gonna find sites themselves either way.

How about a song that read 'you drive me to suicide' or something and suicide was censored...

Vague I know, but it was mentioned months ago on a radio show (Opie & Anthony)

The golden section is 15^(1/2)+1)/2, which is ALMOST 1:1.618.

*nerd rage over*



Are you guys through being pissed off over my sig? Jesus Christ, I hope you're not done. I'm so hard right now.

And Survivalism is wrong IMO...wouldn't freedom of speech trump a copyright?

But, yeah, it's not censorship. It's MTV protecting their ass. End thread.


Posting your argument 3 times doesn't make it any more valid..

If someone was really inspired by this song to download some music, don't you think he would find the original lyrics on the internet?

Wow you're the only fucking one whose "fucks" are censored!

Seriously, censorship is bullshit. Everyone knows the words, everyone says them, so why block them on tv? Hell I sweared when I was 10, but I learned it from hearing them at school/by my parents saying them.
