The only instrumental song ever banned because it "promoted gang violence" in 1958.

In January 1959, even though it has no lyrics, the guitar instrumental "Rumble" by Wray was banned by many U.S. radio stations, who feared the title would promote teen violence. When Wray appears on the popular teen ABC television program "American Bandstand", Dick Clark introduces Wray and his band, but refuses to mention the song's title. Despite the ban, the song would still sell over a million copies and Link would follow it with an instrumental entitled "Jack The Ripper".
