Entries Beginning with U

"Uh-Huh (album)," John Mellencamp
Some fundamentalist types bellyached that the album cover shows Mellencamp along with angels that have "demonic" features (horns and pointed tails and such).
Buckeye Chuck
Not actually banned, but when the song appeared in 2008 video game Madden NFL 09, over two-thirds of the words were removed in order to keep the game's "Everyone" rating. Similar censorship appeared in the next game in the series.
"Undercover of the Night," Rolling Stones
This song's video was banned by the BBC and restricted in airplay by MTV due to the extreme violent content. The setting is in the Salvadorian Civil War and the lyrics reflect it too.
I Got Stoned 2X at Ohio State University
"Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins (album)," John Lennon and Yoko Ono
As its title suggests, the album's cover was the reason for its ban. In 1969, it was banned in New Jersey. Copies were confiscated and a store was closed for displaying it in its front window. The album was later partially covered up in brown paper.
A Stranger
"Unknown Soldier," The Doors
In 1968, this Doors' single is banned from airplay at many radio stations because of its anti-war theme.
"Urban Guerilla," Hawkwind
This song by Hawkwind was banned in the mid-seventies because of the rash of violence in Ireland. The song speaks of making bombs in your cellar.
Eric Brock
"Urban Guerilla," Hawkwind
B.B.C. banned this song as they thought it would give creedance and approval to the I.R.A.
