I was doing research for my music censorship essay and found this.

List of Songs banned after 9/11

Just go down to Rage Against The Machine.

It's hilarious all the stuff they censored because of one lyric references to bombs and stuff.....


p.s. Inb4- Don't use wikipedia for essays.

Guys, who f**king edited that?
Josh Homme writes the greatest lyrics EVAR:
"I wish we could get away
Drink wine and screw"


"Nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol
C-C-C-C-Cocaine!"


"I wanna lick you too much"

Those songs aren't actually 'banned' though, are they? I mean it's not like the FCC said they can't be played.

Why on earth is AAF - Smooth Criminal banned, when it's a cover of a Michael Jackson song?

So their promoting paedophiles and banning something slightly funny

Good one tossers.

Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

Obviously, 99 Red Balloons though, I don't think the german version got banned.

That doesn't seem like censorship to me. As I read it, it wasn't mandatory...they just said, "These might seem to be in bad taste to some people in light of what happened."
Quote by HuckIt
My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.

yeah its hilarious that loads of people died.. :|
/elitist youtube commenter

anyway.. I think it is over the top sometimes when they ban things.. but this is quite a touchy subject, and its not like a song about gays.. who take offense to literally nothing. Its about a lot of suffering. But as long as its not a song like "9/11 was good" then they shouldnt be banned. Its like putty footing around the situation.

EDIT: I read the thing and it was only at the time.. which is good showing sensitivity.. and it was a ban.. just a thing saying these lyrics are a bit dodgy.. you might not want to play these songs.
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

of course! it's about war and flying things (hot air balloons), just because the English version is about balloons doesn't mean the original is.

i noticed that no one played "learn to fly" for a while, not even on Fuse or any other TV network. i also noticed Nickelodeon quit airing the Band Geeks episode because two guys fly like two airplanes into a hot air balloon in the episode.

I love the way they did a blanket ban on RATM. Can't be bothered to see which songs are actually offensive. Just ban the lot and be done with it.
