The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 450 Songs That Are Banned entries on the site.
"Start Me Up," The Rolling Stones
Just this week, I heard a version that was altered from "you make a dead man come" to "you make a dead man cry."
"Fancy," Iggy Azalea (feat. Charli XCX)
Fancy has a lot of bad words such as f * * k and b* * * h so those words are blanked out. Also, some radio stations blank out the featured artist's verses.
"Peacock," Katy Perry
Due to the " I wanna see your peacock-cock-cock" line in the song, since you can't say "cock" on the radio, The cock-cock line is blanked and on certain radio stations, the song is banned.
"There's A Riot Goin' On.," Sly And The Family Stone
This song was banned in either the late 60's or very very 70's. I know I had an acid cut of that song.
"A.D.I.D.A.S.," Little Mix
It stands for "All Day I Dream About Sex" ("shush" in the radio edit).
"Love Me Like You," Little Mix
Was originally called "F--k Me Like You", but was changed because it was inappropriate.
"Lucky Man," Montgomery Gentry
Eddie Montgomery sang the song on a classic radio station "last Sunday when my redskins lost". Now it changed to "Last Sunday when the Bengals lost".
"New Orleans Is Sinking," The Tragically Hip
After Katrina this song was placed on Clearwater chanmel's banned songs list.
"The Lone Twister," The Lone Twister
This record was released during the twist craze of the early 1960s featuring the voice of WINS New York City disc jockey "Murray the K" Kaufman. Although the label did not identify Murray as the singer, other NYC stations banned the record rather than recognize someone from a competing station.
"Lollipop," Ronald & Ruby
In 1958 the original RCA Victor version of Lollipop rose to number 20 on the national charts despite getting banned on some radio stations because the performers were a racially integrated couple. He was black, she was white. Archie Bleyer's Cadence label took advantage of the situation and got a number-one hit with a cover version by the all-white Chordettes.
"The Meditation," TNT Band
Although this R&B song made number one on New York City's Latin chart in the late 1960s, the tune by Tito Ramos and Tony Rojas was banned from mainstream radio because of the lyric, "You make me cream."
"Boogaloo Blues," Johnny Colon
A smash in the Latin sections of New York City, radio stations refused to allow this song to become a crossover hit because of its lyric, "LSD has a hold on me" and "Take it all off."
"Shame and Scandal in the Family," Shawn Elliott
This faux calypso broke out as a hit in Detroit but its racy lyrics prevented radio stations from giving the song nationwide exposure.
"That Boy John," The Raindrops
Song written and performed by Ellie Greenwich and Barry Mann released just days before the JFK assassination. Banned from radio because some people might think the song's lyrics referred to John Kennedy.
To this day, the lyrics to this 1950s classic remain undecipherable. Naturally people assume it was obscene. The flip, "Tight Skirt And Sweater" was stopped by the program director in mid-play by DJ Alan Freed on WINS New York City because of its lyrics.
"Scream & Shout," Will.i.am
On the radio, the lyric "You're gonna turn the s*** up" (spoken by Britney Spears) is altered to "You're gonna tuh-turn it up." Additionally, some stations have the "b***h" in "You are now, now rockin' with Will.i.am and Britney, b***h" either reversed, or replaced with an echo of "Britney."
"A Boy Named Sue," Johnny Cash
A second censorship occurs at the end of the song. "Any damn thing but Sue!" is shortened to "Anything but Sue!"
"The Devil Went Down To Georgia," The Charlie Daniels Band
In the re-recording of this song, "son of a bitch" is replaced with "son of a gun."
"Put Your Mouth On Me," Eddie Murphy
From the title, which by the way is used as the lyrics, it sounds like Eddie wants his lover to suck his ****. LOL
"A Boy Named Sue," Johnny Cash
The uncensored version features the line "'Cause I'm the son of a bitch that named you Sue." The censored version, which appears on his Super Hits CD, has the entire "son of a bitch" bleeped out.
