Song Title Space Change:

"Sorted 'Fore Sand Wizz" originally "Sorted for E's and Wizz"
Submitted by: Ron N. O'Connor

Songs That Are Banned:

"Sorted For E's And Wizz"
Banned by the BBC in 1997 because of it's references to rave drugs (despite the fact that they are mentioned in a negative context). The band also drew flack for an insert in the single, which featured instructions on how to make a paper wallet to store drugs in. The single still managed to hit #2 in the UK .
