It's Fucking Ret@#$ed

Censorship of radio lyrics has gone to fucking ret@#$ed lengths recently. First up we have the Black Eyed Peas with their hit song "Let's Get Retarded." You may have never heard about this song because the censored radio friendly version is "Lets Get It Started". The lyrics of the original song even state:

In this context, there's no disrespect

So changing the name of the song is in fact ret@#$ed. Another example of stupidity replacing policy is Eminem's latest song "Shake That". I now present to you an unedited sample of the lyrics:

Some girls they act retarded
Some girls are bout it bout it
.........................
He said he wants a slut, hope you don't mind
I told him how you like it from behind

Now the edited version:

Some girls they act r--
Some girls are bout it bout it
.........................
He said he wants a ---, hope you don't mind
I told him how you like it from behind

Doggy Style okay as long as it isn't with a slut, but they can't say ret@#$ed! That's fucking insane! That's why I'm done with testicle radio and sticking to Sirius!

lol - what also gets me is that they basically say 'muthafucka' in rap songs on the radio - they only really 'bleep' out the 'U' HOWEVER, in the Kid Rock song, "Picture", they bleep out the entire word "cocaine".

WTF?

I hate censors,....I have a motto & my best friend has adopted it for our blogs:

If ya ain't like what you see here,...get the f*@K out!

LOL...there's a little red x on my monitor & a dial on my radio,..

How can they presume to decide whats appropriate for us? What the hell is the point of freedom of speech?

I heard a version today of the "Shake That" song that they bleeped "from behind" from the line "I told him how you like it from behind". WTF is offensive with that that they had to bleep "from behind"?
