Thread Name: Banned Music?
Subject: RE: Banned Music?
But 'banned' and 'censored' and 'not aired' and 'protested' are not the same. Banned is an official word, in my opinion.

As for songs and writings of people like that of Coe, there has always been an underground culture where those things have thrived. Some of the world's most famous writers for the last couple hundred years had or have a lively business in it on the side. Having it be printed or sung in mainstream cultures has never been expected. I don't have a problem with its existence- I just don't want it shoved in my face.

M.Ted, I stand corrected on the Teen Angel thing. I believe I had read that the boy is the one who wrote it and recorded it and that he did no other. No prob.
