"The Silly Song. [Some lyrics were removed.]," The Seven Dwarfs, Film: Snow White + the Seven D..
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"!
