Story about this misheard lyric by: Eric

Personally I think the misheard lyric is much more powerful coming at the end of a song about black history, and a verse about a volatile individual spurred toward activism.

Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Mississippi Goddam"
The Lyrics:
Alabama's got me so upset
Tennessee makes me lose my rest
Why:
Alabama and Tennessee, and besides the title, she meant every word of it!
Submitted by: The Skuz
 

Songs That Are Banned:

"Mississippi Goddam"
Banned in several Southern states that still maintained the old Jim Crow laws, especially the one in the title. With all her scathing criticism of the oppression that went with segregation, she briefly assumed we thought she was kidding, when it's far too obvious she meant every word of it.
