Songs That Are Banned -> Latest Entries

"Rubber Bullets," 10cc
Briefly banned by the BBC in 1973 due to several incidents involving overzealous police and the ammunition mentioned in the title. The song rocketed to number one regardless, possibly because it was about a riot in an American prison and not The Troubles.
Submitted by: Horatio
"Everything," Eminem
In 2000, the University of Sheffield banned all Eminem records from student radio due to concern about sexism and homophobia in his lyrics. The ban even extended to student newspapers, with reviewers banned from covering Eminem records and gigs.
Submitted by: Horatio
"Everything," Gary Glitter
After his child pornography charge in 1997, the BBC pulled all Gary Glitter songs from rotation. Further convictions for solicitating sex with minors followed, and to this day the BBC still has a total ban on everything he's recorded to the point he is edited from old Top of the Pops shown on BBC4 and not played on historical chart countdowns. Songs by his former backing group the Glitter Band have become acceptable in recent years though, as long as their connection goes unmentioned.
Submitted by: Horatio
"Heavy Petting Zoo," NOFX
In 1996, the vinyl version of this album was banned in Germany due to the cover depicting an explicit sexual act between a human and a sheep.
Submitted by: Horatio
"S&M," Rihanna
Heavily edited for daytime airplay on BBC Radio 1, replacing references to "chains" and "whips" with appropriate sound effects and removing the repeated "S, S, S, S, M, M, M" chorus. To top it all off, the song was referred to as "Come On". It was played completely uncensored on commercial stations, the lyrics being mildly titillating at best.
Submitted by: Horatio
"Children," Robert Miles
While not banned perse, BBC DJs began referring to this instrumental dance song as "a record by Robert Miles" after the Dunblane school shooting. The title did not, however, affect its popularity and it was one of the biggest hits of 1996.
Submitted by: Horatio
"Brown Sugar," Rolling Stones
Banned by some southern US radio stations in 1971 owing to lyrics alluding to interracial sex.

"Girl From Germany," Sparks
Banned by some US radio stations in 1972 due to Hitler references, despite being a song decrying postwar Germanophobia.
Submitted by: Horatio
"I Predict," Sparks
Video initially banned by MTV due to concerns that the Hitlerian Ron Mael performing a drag striptease was too disturbing.
Submitted by: Horatio
"Dick Around," Sparks
Banned from daytime airplay by BBC Radio London because of the title. There is no sexually explicit content in the song, "dick" here being an American term which loosely means "goofing off".
Submitted by: Horatio
