Songs That Are Banned -> Latest Entries

"Money For Nothing," Dire Straits
Rather than specifically censor the three instances of "f**g*t" in the second verse, some radio stations (at least two in my listening area) have played this song with that verse completely omitted, skipping right to the next chorus.
Submitted by: Jonathan S.
"Younger Men," K.T. Oslin
The song received little or no radio airplay when it was released in 1982 because the lyrics describe older men as being physically unattractive and unable to perform sexually and that a younger man would be better equipted to satisfy her needs. Very few people heard it was included on her ''80's Ladies'' album in 1987.

"Legs," ZZ Top
The liner notes for the 25th anniversary CD + DVD release has a lyric sheet. "Oh I want her. Said I got to have her! The girl is alright.". However, many people mistook the word "said" for the word "shit". Lately, that word that really isn't there has been blanked out altogether with brief silence when it's on the radio. Go figure!

"Feel Good Hit Of The Summer," Queens Of The Stone Age - Length: 2:47
Leadoff track from their 2000 album "Rated R." The lyrics primarily consist of "Nicotine, Valium, Vicodin, marijuana, Ecstasy and alcohol" over and over, with a couple reps of "C-c-c-c-c-cocaine!" to (presumably) break up the monotony.

"Boyfriend #2," Prince
The cover of the CD uses an optical illusion. you can see Prince himself pondering over planet Earth (in a red-tinted outer space) and if you hold the CD casing package, the image shifts to the 'Love Symbol' he released albums under from 1993-2000,

"Boyfriend #2," Prince
The 'Planet Earth' does NOT list the track names anywhere on the CD or the digipack. You have to go to the Internet to find the track listing yourself.
