"Scream & Shout," Will.i.am
On the radio, the lyric "You're gonna turn the s*** up" (spoken by Britney Spears) is altered to "You're gonna tuh-turn it up." Additionally, some stations have the "b***h" in "You are now, now rockin' with Will.i.am and Britney, b***h" either reversed, or replaced with an echo of "Britney."
Jonathan S.
"A Boy Named Sue," Johnny Cash
A second censorship occurs at the end of the song. "Any damn thing but Sue!" is shortened to "Anything but Sue!"
Bob
"The Devil Went Down To Georgia," The Charlie Daniels Band
In the re-recording of this song, "son of a bitch" is replaced with "son of a gun."
Isac
"Put Your Mouth On Me," Eddie Murphy
From the title, which by the way is used as the lyrics, it sounds like Eddie wants his lover to suck his ****. LOL
Isac
"A Boy Named Sue," Johnny Cash
The uncensored version features the line "'Cause I'm the son of a bitch that named you Sue." The censored version, which appears on his Super Hits CD, has the entire "son of a bitch" bleeped out.
Isac
"Darling Nikki," Prince & The Revolution
This song is a segue from "Computer Blue." This song was banned because it mentions Nikki in a hotel lobby "masturbating with a magazine."
Isac
"Wings," Little Mix
Not banned, but one of the opening lines in the song goes "And if they give you shhhh...." Guess they just backed out of saying the whole 's' word there.
Dongquan
"Yellow Fever," Bloodhound Gang
A song about Jimmy Pop having sex with an Asian woman. Was originally released under the Republic Records label of One Fierce Beer Coaster, but was omitted from the album's re-release under the Geffen Records label two months later for being too graphic.

"Hard Out Here," Lily Allen
Not banned per se, but MTV did not censor "bitch", "ass", or "slut" adue being a TV-PG station but well much censoring the balloons in the video with the message: "Lily Allen has a baggy -----"
ILoveMusic
"Habits (Stay High)," Tove Lo
EDIT: This was not banned per se, but strangely, high is censored in TV airings.

"The Silly Song," Disney's Snow White And The Seven Dwarves
One of the verses, sung by one of the [long bearded] dwarfs, was removed for being too taboo, says Disney, the company that made the 1930s film- "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". The verse of the song goes like this: " When I was born, I had no clothes, I didn't even have a nightie./ So, I wrapped my whiskers around my legs, and used the for a didy."

"Fight For The Rock (Album)," Savatage
This album was given a PA sticker upon release, despite containing no objectionable content. Why? The band's last album had featured objectionable content and had eventually been given the PA sticker. The record label figured slapping stickers on harmless albums would help them sell.

"Open Up And Say... Ahh (Album)," Poison
The original cover showed a model dressed like a demon with clawed nails, a giant tongue and the like. Christians objected and most future releases of the album only showed the model's eyes.

"Something's Gotta Give," All Time Low
All Time Low shows many violent scenes of a flesh eating zombie in this video, and he is killed at the end. MTV will still show this video, but in the cleanest way possible. But again, no music channels minded violence in Taylor Swift & Kendrick Lamar's "Bad Blood"!
ILoveMusic
"See It Through," Janis Ian
Banned in Germany
Bud Manning
"Only the Good Die Young," Billy Joel
Banned for being "anti-Catholic"
Evan
"Love Me Two Times," The Doors

Evan
"Lady Godiva," Peter and Gordon
Banned in Coventry (home of Lady Godiva) for obscenity
Evan
"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," Jimmy Boyd
Banned because it was to sexual for the Catholic church. No, really.
