Thread Name: Banned Music?
Subject: RE: Banned Music?
Street Fighting Man by the Stones was banned on many stations. Brown-Eyed Girl by Van Morrison was banned by many stations because of the line "Makin' love in the green grass behind the stadium". There is an "acceptable" version still heard on some oldie stations in which the "offensive" line is replaced by an earlier line in the song. All of Cat Stevens were banned by many stations, and some stations had a Cat Stevens record burning, during the Salmon Rushdie death warrant thing. Listening to todays radio I would say that most of the "New Country" should be banned due to supreficiality!
